Here are some questions to ask a prospective employer about benefits:

· What kind of retirement savings plan do you have?

· How many years does it take to vest (be legally entitled to receive pension payments)?

· Is there an employer match for a 401(k) or other retirement savings plan? How much?

· How much will the employer's health plan cost me?
