Personal health, security and well-being translate to success in the workplace. IDA takes great pride in offering a comprehensive benefits program that ranks at the top of the industry in both quality and choice.
Retirement: As one of our flagship benefits, IDA’s retirement plan offers eligible employees the opportunity to save for the future through both an employee and employer contribution. For qualifying staff, IDA’s employer contribution (as opposed to an employer match) is equal to 11% of the staff member’s base salary. Investments are managed by TIAA or the Vanguard Group.
Health: IDA offers competitive medical, dental and vision coverage in addition to pretax health care and dependent care flexible spending accounts. We offer a choice between Aetna PPO, Aetna Consumer Driven Health Plan (CDHP) with a Health Savings Account, or Kaiser HMO. Dental and vision plans are provided by MetLife and VSP Signature, respectively.
Educational Assistance and Tuition Reimbursement: As a learning institution, we value and understand the power of education. IDA offers tuition reimbursement up to $5,250 per calendar year. We also offer a competitive IDA Scholar Award program that offers full tuition costs for a select number of employees enrolled in strong academic programs at accredited U.S. colleges and universities.
Transportation: IDA offers free on-site parking for those who commute to work by car. We also participate in the WMTA’s Smart Benefits Program in order to provide public transportation benefits. Additionally, our Alexandria headquarters is located just one block from the Potomac Yard Metro.
