Changing Jobs? Top Financial Considerations Beyond Salary


Salary is an important consideration, but it shouldn’t be your only one.

It accounts for just 70 percent of your total compensation, leaving 30 percent hinging on benefits. When changing jobs, you’ll want to carefully evaluate these benefits, such as the different health insurance and retirement plans, disability income insurance and tuition reimbursement. Often companies offer additional benefits that go unnoticed. Don’t neglect looking into these benefits.
