State of Delaware Employees enjoy a total compensation package that far exceeds the value of their base salary. As a prospective employee you may not be aware of the amount the State contributes toward the cost of benefits, and the value of the various components of the State’s compensation package beyond the base salary. To help you understand the total compensation that you could receive as a state merit employee, we have developed this interactive “Total Compensation Calculator”.

While this is for illustrative purposes only and may not be indicative of actual compensation, it has been developed to help you understand the State’s contribution to an employee's compensation package.

Total Compensation Calculator



You may use this interactive "Total Compensation Calculator" to enter an annual salary or paygrade and the Health Insurance desired; the calculator will then calculate a projection of  the value of your Total Compensation package based on the values for calendar year 2008. Included in the calculations are:

  • Health Insurance
  • Disability Benefits
  • Pension Benefits
  • Paid Time Off (Vacation, Sick and Holidays)

It does not include our numerous voluntary benefits that eligible employees can receive at group rates or special pays such as selective market or hazard pay that can be associated with specific positions.

In addition to the calculator, the Delaware Employment Link (DEL) contains numerous links to detailed information regarding paid leave, health insurance, retirement and savings programs, work life balance programs, career development opportunities and employee supplemental benefits.
