    The medical coverage is outstanding. Anything you need they will do for you in a matter of days, even with as remote as some people's communities of service.

    During service you have complete coverage. But after your service RPCVs have 1 month of free health care with the option to purchase health care after the initial month. 2 Vacation days per month. After completion of 2 year service RPCVs can apply to graduate programs that offer Peace Corps Coverdell Fellowship Scholarships. Non-Competitive Eligibility for federal positions 1 year after service.

    The best thing was full medical coverage for the duration of the placement. Additionally, the fellowship and career services are very nice.

    Overall, I thought that the benefits were excellent -- as stated in my company review, the Excepted Service status of the agency allowed flexibility that resulted in excelllent pay and benefits.

    All your health needs are provided for while in Peace Corps. You are provided with one month of transition health insurance at no cost which can be extended by two more months at your own cost. Any health condition that developed as a result of your service is covered. The process can be lengthy and confusing though. If you have federal student loans, your Peace Corps service counts toward the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program as long as you are signed up under an income-based repayment plan at the time.
