The premium structure is dependent upon the plan and the type of coverage elected by the employee: employee only, employee and child(ren), employee and spouse, family, etc.

with Visionworks as well as other vision providers in the area. The premium structure is dependent on

Life Insurance

Life insurance coverage is provided through The Standard. This begins the first day of the month coinciding with or following date of hire 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

Retirement benefits are provided 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.

Upon retirement, employees age 55 or older who have 15 years of continuous service may be compensated for their accrued sick leave, up to a maximum of 1,040 hours, or use the amount toward purchasing extended health insurance coverage.

Long-term disability coverage is provided through Northwestern Mutual. This begins the first day of the month coinciding with or following the date of hire at no cost to employees.

One must be disabled six months before becoming eligible to receive benefits. It is based on 60% of annual salary up to a maximum of $100,000 annual salary. 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.
