Life insurance coverage is provided by The Standard.
This begins the first day of the month coinciding with or following date of hire. This is at no cost to employees. The life benefit is equal to 1.25 times the annual salary with a minimum $60,000 coverage and a maximum benefit of $210,000 unless the employee is past the age of 65, at which time the benefit is reduced.
Retirement is through TIAA (Teachers Insurance Annuity Association). Participation is MANDATORY. 6% is deducted from the employee’s pay on a pre-tax basis and 6% is contributed by the organization, thus making a 12% total contribution to an employee’s retirement fund.
There is also an option for employees to begin a supplemental retirement account and have additional non-matched funds submitted to the retirement plan. To do this, employees must notify the Benefits Coordinator. To be vested (retain employer’s portion of contributions), employees must remain employed with Marshall Health and be a participant in the plan for three years.

There is a $5,000 per month maximum payout. This would be offset by an amount received from social security. This does not include any privately owned policies.
