Illinois College offers an extensive benefits package to all full-time employees. Benefits include dental, health, vision, disability, and life insurance. In addition to our insurance plans we offer a flexible spending account, tuition remission/exchange and generous vacation and sick leave.
The College offers group dental insurance at the employee's expense. There are two plans to choose from, high and low. The coinsurance and premiums are the only difference in the plans.
The Colleges pay a portion of the premium for group health insurance. We offer a high deductible PPO plan with a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA). The College pays the first portion of the annual deductible via the HRA which is administered by Benefits Planning Consultants (BPC).
The College pays for vision insurance for all full-time employees. The employee can choose to add coverage for their dependents at their expense.
The College pays the life insurance premium for coverage equal to one times the employee's salary. The employee has the choice of selecting coverage of one, two or three additional times their salary at the employee’s expense. Additionally, the employee can purchase term life insurance coverage for their spouse or domestic partner and dependents.
The College pays 50% of the long-term disability benefit.
The following are available at employee’s expense: supplemental AFLAC insurance coverage including accident, short term disability, cancer, specified health event, and long-term care.
Flexible Spending Account
The College offers a flexible spending account (FSA) through TASC FlexSystem. The College does not contribute to this account, however, benefits are tax-free.
The College participates in the Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association’s (TIAA-CREF) retirement program. Participation in the retirement plan is mandatory to all eligible employees. Employees must contribute at least 5 percent of their gross pay per pay period and the College matches with a 7 percent contribution. Employees also have the option to participate in a supplemental retirement plan with no contribution from the College.
