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.
