To attract and retain highly qualified employees, Rady Children's offers employees a comprehensive package of benefits. Your coverage is effective on the 31st day of active employment in a benefits-eligible position. You must enroll for benefits within 30 days of the date you become eligible for benefits.

Your eligible dependents include your legally married spouse, domestic partner, unmarried dependent children age 18 or younger, unmarried children from age 19 through age 24 who are enrolled as full-time students, and children of any age totally disabled due to a physical or mental handicap if enrolled before age 25.
