First Interview Question

Is it okay to ask about benefits on the first interview? I have two interviews set up next week and I want to ask questions around health care coverage/cost and paid time off but I fear these type of questions will raise red flags and cause me to loose interview points for choosing what employers might consider "sensitive" pre-employment topics of discussion. I know salary talk is out of the question but are company benefits questions also taboo?

Employers will typically present you with benefits information at the time that they make an offer. If that information isn't available by the time they officially present you with an offer letter, I think it's acceptable to ask, but before that I would hold off.
