    Great choice of health care plans. 5% matching to retirement plan

    The end of service with Peace Corps is very abrupt. You are provided with one month of health insurance after your return to the US (Appointments and maybe test are covered, no treatment) and can extend it for two more months on your own dime but that's it. Other benefits include one year of non-competitive eligibility for government positions, online career services, opportunity for scholarships and special university programming.

    Peace Corps follows standard Federal benefits and Leave policies, which are generous and increase with additional time served. You are also eligible to buy back your Volunteer service at a low rate, to be used towards retirement calculations. Also the NCE status is a nice addition, although many agencies don't seem to be familiar with it.

    Paid time off is generous for the US. There are a lot of options for insurance and retirement plans. There are smaller benefits like paying for the metro to and from work. However, they will not help with tuition, and it was hard to arrange regular telework, although higher-level employees did negotiate this.

    In my opinion, the federal government has the best benefits packages.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Regional Recruiter in New York, New York State

    Full federal benefits. No bonuses or OT, but generous time off and plenty of sick-leave to maintain your health and work-life balance. Great teleworking policy, which helps in a city where most people have long commutes.

    There was a lot of vacation time. It was hard to take it all.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Peace Corps Volunteer in Washington, District of Columbia

    48 days of vacation for the 2 years, plus plenty of opportunities to travel within country without taking time off. AfterCorps (health insurance after Peace Corps) is the worst -- it does not meet minimal requirements of the Affordable Care Act.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    After serving for 27 months, you get about 7,000 dollars for readjustment allowance. You also get your flights paid for and Peace Corps does look nice on the resume.

    Good work life balance from telework and transportation options. PPO and HMO options are decent.
