Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution helps provide you with financial security through a comprehensive benefits package, letting you select the plans and coverage that best meet your needs and those of your family, including your spouse, domestic partner and eligible dependents. Your benefits offer protection when you have medical or dental expenses if you’re sick or injured and can’t work, when you retire or die. All benefits are subject to the terms of the respective plan and legal requirements at the time you qualify for a particular benefit.
