Work to Smile About

Your job is what you do so you can live your life and provide for your family. Ours is to help you meet your priorities.

Providing great benefits.

At Publix, providing great customer service goes beyond helping shoppers in our stores. It extends to providing great benefits to and support for our associates. The Benefits department does plenty of that, as you'll see below. But it also provides benefits and support for our associates' family members, associates who have retired, and stockholders. This equates to hundreds of thousands of people-quite a challenge for the 81 associates who administer Publix's health, welfare, retirement and stock purchase plans.

Our Team Structure

The Benefits department is comprised of four sub-departments: Group Benefits, Retirement, Stockholder Services, and Benefits Administration.

Group Benefits is responsible for our health and welfare benefits plans (dental, life, long-term disability insurance). This includes administering eligibility and enrollment, providing customer service and maintaining vendor relations.

Retirement is responsible for our employee stock ownership and 401(k) plans. This includes administering eligibility and enrollment, processing distributions and allocations, providing customer service and maintaining vendor relations.

Stockholder Services is responsible for our company stock plans. This group acts as the registrar and transfer agent for Publix common stock. This includes administering eligibility, processing stock purchases and redemptions and providing customer service.

Benefits Administration handles strategic benefits planning, financial and data analysis, project management, contractual and regulatory compliance and reporting, vendor procurement and management, and communications planning and development.

Our Positions

Our Benefits department offers many opportunities for growth. Whether you're looking for an entry-level position or a professional one, we seek individuals who share our dedication and commitment to Publix's goals and objectives, provide premier customer service, and have a passion for excellence.

These are some of the positions in our Benefits department.
