Employee Benefits and Confusing Options

Today's most emailed article from the online New York Times is "A Primer for Young People Starting their First Job."

The author says: "To the employers who are about to put them to work, however, I urge you to take another look at the pile of employee manuals that detail all your fabulous benefits. They’re boring. They’re confusing. And they start in the middle instead of defining things from the beginning .... I offer a proper primer on health insurance, taxes and retirement plans for employees starting their very first jobs. Please pass it out with my regards."

The article provides a really good overview of options and how to calculate potential decisions. Might want to send it to new employees, or even existing employees?
