Oaklawn offers two plan options to employees and their families to ensure that participants can choose the best fit for them. Linked below are explanations of the plans.


Oaklawn offers two options for dental insurance:

Basic and Voluntary Life Insurance

Oaklawn offers life insurance of 1.5 times your salary, up to $50,000, free of charge to employees.

If employees would like to purchase additional voluntary life insurance, we partner with SunLife to provide low cost life insurance options for you to select from:


Short-Term and Long-Term Disability Insurance

Oaklawn provides short-term disability benefits after two years of service, determined by your full-time employment status and length of employment at Oaklawn.

Employees can purchase additional voluntary short-term disability coverage through SunLife:

Long-term disability is provided by Oaklawn at no charge to the employee. After six months of being out of work, long-term disability benefits begin at 60 percent of your base pay and extend for 24 months.

403(b) Plan and Employer Match
There is no waiting period to begin saving to your 403(b) plan through Oaklawn. After you have worked 1,000 hours and are over the age of 21, Oaklawn will match 50% of your employee contribution, up to a maximum match by Oaklawn of 3%.
Flexible Spending Accounts

Oaklawn offers flexible spending accounts that allow employees to save money pre-tax for medical expenses and/or childcare expenses. At the end of the year, if you have not spent your dollars, you can roll-over $500 to the next year.

Paid Time Off

Paid time off is important in the mental health care field. We want to ensure employees have access to the self-care they need as well as work-life balance.

Clinical Licensure Package

Did you know that 57 percent of those who get a master’s degree in social work or mental health counseling never get their full clinical licensure? We want to help you be the exception and get your clinical license as soon as possible. We provide:

  • Help applying for the first step of the LSW, LMHC-A or LCAC-A
  • Clinical supervision in individual and group settings (all free to you)
  • Help with the final step completing the LCSW, LMHC or LCAC

These add up to over $12,000 of value available to you as an Oaklawn employee. And, there is increased compensation at the successful acquisition of your full clinical license, with many leadership opportunities if you have interest.
