There are so many benefits to choose from and how they work is you get $4 extra fringe pay, so if my pay is $14 an hour I'm really getting paid $18 and that goes directly to your benefits so it doesn't come out of your pocket! What ever you don't use towards benefits goes into a 401A account. The healthcare and vision are great plans and companies.
Best is the medical supplement
Benefits are outsourced to another company which is impossible to get in touch with. The benefits are not competitive with other federal contractors at all. Expensive premiums, very high deductible health plans, benefits get cut randomly. You get 10 days PTO that you have to use for everything, and you have to use your PT0 in 8 hour increments. The 401k matching is nice though.
Offers a variety of plans and options. Allows for employees to choose the plan best for them and/or their family. The company reviews plans annually and keeps everyone informed of any changes. Does not offer health club or gym membership reimbursement.
I am a single employee and although my colleagues have had issues with the benefits, I have benefitted (no pun int.) by the high deductible plan because Chenega gives me $150 a month on my HSA plan. I’ve been able to use my HSA card for all of my medical expenses thus far because of this. So even though the upfront is expensive, you gather a lot of free money to cover those upfronts. I also get a LOT of PTO and I appreciate that so much I cannot even express it.
There are many options for benefits and the employee hand book explains them all. It is best to contact HR via email when you have questions because sometimes the onsite manager is unable to explain all of the options.
The best think about Chenega are the company dinners and 401K plan. The company will match you up to 3%. I have no complains about the benefits.
No perks or other benefits for contractors. This is normal.
No PTO for first year, low contribution to health insurance, outsourced health insurance
With Chenega, you're stuck choosing from an HSA or HRA plan. While they do contribute heavily to each, coverage under each plan still isn't great.
