One of the great perks of my new job is that I didn’t have to wait for my new beneftis to kick in. Many employers will force new employees to wait three months, to determine if they want to ‘keep them’ before they offer benefits. My employer wants happy employees.
So, I get benefits.
What does that mean for me?
Well, two nights ago my prescription refill went from the $389 I’ve been spending monthly, to… $52.
That means I get $337 a month back.
Which, given my expenses lately, is a huge reprieve.
It’s a small win. I still have the tax bills, the lawyer bills, the car bills, and oodles of trauma to overcome. But, I need to take it one small step at a time. Feeling greatful for my new employer and that they care about their employees’ well being.
