Overall Benefit Recommendations
Medical insurance is the most valued benefit by employees since it gives them easy access to:
- Outpatient medical treatment by qualified medical specialists
- Highly specialized diagnostic tests (CT&MRI)
- A full range of dental services
- Reimbursement for vision and prescription expenses
For inpatient care, most medical insurance products provide that insurance can be used only in excess of the state-provided hospital care.
Life insurance is strongly recommended (life and long-term disability risks) since the state’s benefits are very low.
Voluntary pension insurance is the third pillar of the Bulgarian pension system. It’s gaining popularity among middle-aged employees middle age, and it’s typical to split contributions between the employer and the employee.
Perks such as meal vouchers, gym membership cards, access to different facilities on the office premises, qualified and certified training, internal training and seminar participation, longer annual paid leave, mentor programs, and perks are popular.
