It was one of the best in the nation
Great Medical and Dental Insurance Benefits
Job security, 50% pension after 20 years, competitive health benefits
The best: They are benefits that are guaranteed to all police officers. They serve to protect us that protect Chicago. The not so good: Chicago's finances are unstable. The mayor is putting the pension fund in limbo by wanting to add more time to fully fund them. They are just kicking the can down the road.
The benefits are good. Some benefits are completely like workers compensation which is covered by an insurance company, city makes entire payment. Other benefits like health insurance, dental and vision are paid for by cost sharing.
dental and eye plans are bad and with pay flex they should issue the credit card.
Some of the benefits are Pension Plan, Medical /Dental/Vision. Tuition reimbursement.
The benefits package changes yearly. Overly a great package compared to some other places.
