Medical and Other Benefits

Medical Insurance Plan

Hendrix College offers a medical insurance plan and bears a substantial cost of this plan for all full-time employees and eligible dependents.  Coverage is effective immediately from the first day of employment.  Information detailing the specific provisions of the current coverage may be obtained from the Human Resources Department.

Group life insurance

The College pays for the full cost of a term life insurance policy with a face value equal to the current base salary rounded to the next thousand for each full-time employee.

Section 125 Cafeteria Plan

All full-time employees are eligible to participate in a plan that allows them to withhold up to $2,550 per year for unreimbursed medical expenses for themselves and their eligible dependents, and up to $5,000 per year for dependent/child care expenses on a pre-tax basis. This plan reduces the employee’s federal, state and FICA withholdings, thereby increasing the employee’s net pay.  In addition, each employee may purchase voluntary insurances under the cafeteria plan.  Currently, Hendrix offers dental, term life and cancer insurances.  Also available on a voluntary “after-tax” basis are long-term disability, short-term disability, whole life and long-term care plans.

Salary payment

Salaried employees are paid once a month on the next to last regular workday of the month through direct deposit.
