#freshstart2017: Get What's Yours at Work

Email your Human Resources department and ask for an appointment to go over your benefits. The window for switching your health insurance has probably closed, but chances are that your job offers so much more. From reduced gym membership fees to retirement savings contributions, your employer has benefits that you may not even know about.

Let's be real, those first few weeks at your job are all just a blur now. Check in and see what you missed when your eyes glazed over during the benefits meeting. You could be leaving money on the table!

Your HR representative can walk you through how much life insurance you should have and how much is given by your employer. They know the ins and outs of the system, so let them dazzle you. Also, they usually have the best snacks.
