Carewell SEIU 503 Benefits

Your Benefits

Carewell SEIU 503 is the family of training and benefits hardwon by SEIU 503 homecare and personal support providers and personal care attendants to enhance their lives. Delivered clearly, easily and reliably, these offer the stability, health, skills and training workers deserve.


Coverage through Kaiser Permanente Dental that pays for most basic services (like cleanings or fillings) at no cost to you. You also have coverage for a portion of other services (like root canals).


Vision + Hearing

Vision and hearing benefits for no monthly premium.

Employee Assistance Program

Assistance and resources—from help with your taxes to free counseling—for dealing with issues that affect work, home, or family life.

Healthcare Cost Assistance

This benefit covers the cost of your net monthly premium for a qualifying individual health plan purchased through the Marketplace or for Medicare. It also covers up to $6,600 in out-of-pocket medical expenses for claims covered under Medicare or an eligible Marketplace health plan.

Paid Time Off

Up to 40 hours per year of paid time off (PTO), so you can take a break from work when you need to.
