Employee Benefits at the SETI Institute

Since its inception, the SETI Institute has consistently offered competitive health benefits at no cost to employees.  Employees can elect to enroll their dependents in the group health benefits by cost sharing with the SETI Institute.  We value our employees, care about their health and wellbeing, and believe they deserve to have top tier benefit coverage! SETI Institute employees working 20 or more hours per week become eligible for health benefits the first of the month after date of hire.  No waiting period!
