IFR meets the criteria for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program: If you have student loans, you may be eligible for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program. Since IFR is a not-for-profit organization, our employees are eligible to apply for the program!

On-site supervision meets BBS requirements: IFR supports employees’ growth, especially for mental health professionals who are working to gain hours toward licensing. If you are seeking to complete your license through the Board of Behavior Science, your time at IFR can help you meet your requirements. 

35-hour work week: IFR is committed to promoting a healthy work-life balance for its employees, including a 35-hour work week for full-time employees.

Flexible Schedule: Sometimes employees need a flexible start time, like when you're dropping or picking up children from school or child care or providing parental care. In those instances, IFR will review your request and work with you on start/end times to accommodate your needs. We work hard to accommodate employees as much as possible when their schedule is impacted by external factors.

Retirement plan: Few nonprofit organizations can contribute to employees' retirement plans, but IFR believes it's important to your overall health and wellness. As a result, IFR contributes a percentage of annual salary to employee 403(b) retirement plans for those who are eligible. To qualify, an employee must work 910 hours with IFR from the beginning of the fiscal year to the end (July 1 – June 30).

Professional development opportunities: IFR encourages employees to pursue higher education and, where possible, provides flexible schedules to allow you to pursue educational pursuits. IFR also provides training and allows employees to attend conferences to improve/add skills to help them perform their jobs better.

Medical plans: IFR offers a choice between two medical plans: one plan that is 100% employer-paid and another that is provided at a discounted rate. In both cases, IFR contributes 75% towards the cost of dependent medical coverage.

Dental benefits – IFR offers one plan with 100% coverage for employees. Dependents may be enrolled in the same plan, with premiums paid through payroll deduction.

Paid Vacation and Sick Leave: In addition to federal holidays, employees also get Cesar Chavez Day and Día de los Pueblos Indígenas off!

Commuter Benefits – IFR's commuter benefits allow employees to pay for transit to work via pre-tax payroll deductions.

Access to Vision Care Plan: Employees have two plans to choose from at a low cost!
