Employee Benefits Survey

Metadata Updated: February 15, 2020

National Compensation Survey - Benefits produces comprehensive data on the incidence (the percentage of workers with access to and participation in employer provided benefit plans) and provisions of selected employee benefit plans. The Employee Benefits Survey (EBS) is an annual survey of the incidence and provisions of selected benefits provided by employers. The data are presented as a percentage of employees who participate in a certain benefit, or as an average benefit provision (for example, the average number of paid holidays provided to employees per year). The survey covers paid leave benefits such as holidays and vacations, and person, funeral, jury duty, military, parental, and sick leave; sickness and accident, long-term disability, and life insurance; medical, dental, and vision care plans; defined benefit pension and defined contribution plans; flexible benefits plans; reimbursement accounts; and unpaid parental leave. Also, data are tabulated on the incidence of several other benefits, such as severance pay, child-care assistance, wellness programs, and employee assistance programs.
