Benefit Description
Retirement Plan

All employees (with the exception of Wheaton College Student Employees) are eligible to participate immediately upon date of hire with tax deferred or Roth employee contributions to the plan record kept by TIAA. After one year of employment, and attainment of 21 years of age, employees who have worked a minimum of 1,000 hours in a 12 month measurement period will qualify to receive the institutional matching contribution.  Specifically, the College will match an employee's contribution of up to 4% of an employee's salary at a 2:1 rate with a maximum College contribution of 8%. The waiting period for the employer match may be waived for prior full-time service with an employer that qualifies as a higher education institution or a Code Section 501(c)3 institution.

Medical Insurance Effective the first day of employment, all full-time employees are eligible for medical coverage under a PPO or HMO plan through BlueCross BlueShield of Illinois.
Dental Insurance Effective the first day of employment, all full-time employees are eligible for dental insurance under a PPO plan through Delta Dental. The annual maximum benefit is $1,000 per covered individual, and orthodontia coverage is included for dependent children under age 19 with $1,000 lifetime maximum.
Flexible Spending Effective the first day of employment, employees are eligible to enroll in Medical and Dependent Care accounts. These accounts allow employees to pay eligible healthcare and dependent care expenses with pre-tax payroll deductions.
Life Insurance Effective the first day of employment, the College pays the entire cost of basic, term life insurance for full-time employees.

A percentage of tuition payment is also available for employees' children after four years of employment.
