One of Lehigh’s newer voluntary benefits is for the furrier members of our families.
Did you know that Americans share their homes with about 144 million dogs and cats? That’s a lot of purring and drooly friends, and a lot of veterinarian bills.
Unfortunately, recent studies indicate that a lot of pet owners aren’t taking their animals to the vet. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, dog vet visits have dropped 21 percent since 2001 and cat visits are down 30 percent. Not surprisingly, emergency vet visits have increased at the same time.
Robert Keyse hails from the United Kingdom, but he spent five years in the United States before he joined Lehigh as a research scientist. Arriving in Bethlehem, he and his wife knew that they wanted to live near campus on the south side.
Since the new Lehigh Retirement Plan launched in January, there has been a greater than 50 percent increase in staff and faculty who are voluntarily contributing to their own retirement savings. That means 64 percent of employees are now receiving a match from Lehigh on at least a portion of those savings.
