Paid time off and holidays
PTO gives professionals the flexibility to manage time off in a way that works best for them. Deloitte’s PTO program gives professionals an allotment of days that encompass vacation, personal, and sick time. Actual PTO accrual will depend on the professional’s position and possibly on their years of eligible service. When combined with holidays, there are 35 days off on average with a minimum level of 30 days off per year. To provide additional flexibility, our program includes a carryover provision for unused PTO.
Life and family
Deloitte offers paid time off to bond with a new child, whether that child joins your family through birth or adoption. Primary caregivers—women or men—are offered up to eight weeks of fully-paid parental leave in addition to any short-term disability benefits payable (typically six to eight weeks depending upon type of delivery) and non-primary caregivers are offered up to three weeks of fully-paid parental leave.
Deloitte offers counseling and referral services for professionals who are considering adoption, and reimbursement of up to $5,000 per child for eligible expenses related to an adoption.
Emergency Back-up Dependent Care (adults and children)
This service can be used when you need to be at work and your regular child or adult/elder care is unavailable. Care is available for infants through teenage children and adult relatives of Deloitte employees, up to a maximum of 30 days per employee per fiscal year.
Deloitte offers two sabbatical programs: an unpaid one-month sabbatical that can be taken for any reason; and a three- to six-month sabbatical that can be taken to pursue personal or professional growth opportunities in the areas of career development or volunteerism. While on a three- to six-month sabbatical, professionals continue to receive 40% of their pre-sabbatical base salary.
The program is voluntary and offers:
- An opportunity to achieve personal and professional goals
- Time to refresh and renew to help increase effectiveness, creativity and productivity
- An acknowledgment of hard work and dedication
Deloitte understands that for some, pets are another member of the family. To help cover the cost of health care for your pet, Deloitte offers a pet insurance program—at a special discount for US-based professionals. From routine office visits to significant medical incidents, the Veterinary Pet Insurance (VPI) provides protection for pets when they need it most. Depending upon the options you choose, your pet's policy can include coverage for a range of conditions related to: illnesses including cancer, routine medical care including vaccinations, de-worming, spay/neuter, and more. Policyholders are free to use any licensed veterinarian anywhere, even while away from home.

Deloitte's healthcare offerings include competitive medical, dental, and vision plans. Five different national medical plan options with three carriers are available. All of the plans provide:

FSAs and HSAs
The health care flexible spending account (HCFSA) helps eligible plan participants save money on certain health care expenses—such as eligible medical, dental, and/or vision care expenses not paid by a Deloitte plan—for themselves or their eligible dependents through contributions made to an HCFSA account before-tax. Deloitte’s HCFSA also offers a debit card that allows immediate access to FSA funds when used at participating providers.
The dependent care flexible spending account (DCFSA) allows participants to set aside up to $5,000 from their before-tax pay for eligible dependent care expenses.
Participants in the High Deductible Health Plan offered by Deloitte may be eligible to establish a Health Savings Account (HSA). Contributing to an HSA provides an opportunity to build a personal fund to pay for current and future qualified health care expenses—tax-free. Similar to an individual retirement account (IRA), money is put away before-tax, investment returns are tax-sheltered, and distributions for qualified health care expenses are tax-free. And HSA participants can also elect to participate in a Limited Purpose Flexible Spending Account, another way to save on eligible vision, dental, and preventive care expenses.
