Healthcare at the Port of Seattle

Note: Updated Disclosure Notices are now available below.

The Core Principles that guide the Port’s Total Rewards philosophy state that benefits should be slightly better than market average, provide choices to meet diverse employee’s needs, and be managed in a fiscally responsible way that is sustainable over time. The philosophy encourages employees to take an active role in understanding and utilizing their benefits responsibly, and that employees should share in the cost of their healthcare.
