  • Simple pre-assembled investment options called Retirement Funds
  • Additional core investment choices: Hearst Television provides basic life insurance, in the amount of 1.5 times your salary, at no cost. In addition, you can also purchase additional supplemental life insurance for yourself, your spouse and your dependents.

Employees are automatically enrolled in a salary continuation plan after one year of employment, which will replace a portion of lost monthly income if you are unable to work due to a disabling illness or injury.
