Our Retirement Plan is commonly referred to as a 401(k) plan. Under the Plan, you may choose to have a specific percentage or dollar amount withheld from your salary and have such amount deposited directly into a 401(k) account on your behalf. As a pre-tax contribution, you do not have to pay any income tax while your Salary Deferrals are held in the Plan, and any earnings on your Salary Deferrals are not taxed while they stay in the Plan. Employees are eligible to join the 401(k) plan after three months of employment.
Medical insurance benefits are available to all W2 employees on the 1st of the month following their start date.

Section 125 Premium Only Plan (POP)
- Saratoga has signed up for a Section 125 Premium Only Plan (POP). The POP has been established so that participants will not have to include as taxable income the amount of compensation they use to pay for their premium contributions to eligible insurance plans offered by the company. Enrollment in the POP pre-tax program is automatic when you sign up for insurance benefits, but a signed form is required by all employees that sign up for the Saratoga insurance benefits.
SWACU (Southwest Airlines Federal Credit Union): Our employees get tangible credit union benefits for as long as they bank with SWACU.
