Planning for your Future
Offering you the opportunity to save for a financially secure retirement is as important to PARS as it is to you and your family. Employees have the option of contributing to a Tax-Deferred 401(k) Savings Plan or a Roth 401(k).
PARS also has an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) which helps you and your dependents address everyday challenges, from managing workplace stress, to family matters like parenting, education, financial, and legal questions, as well as emotional well-being. The EAP provides 24-hour access to professional counselors, including face-to-face visits as needed.
