Benefits

We offer the usual benefits. Some not so usual ones, too.

My name is Nancy Tarchis. I manage benefits for our consultants and internal employees. I have been the Benefits Manager for Signature Consultants for over seven years.

There are many benefits to working with Signature and they’re not limited to the friends first approach! I work closely with our partners at Mercer Marketplace who offer a sophisticated, turnkey solution for controlling costs and turning benefits selection into a retail shopping experience.  They even have a call center that will assist you with choosing the perfect plan.

Just like any long-term relationship, we’re here for you in sickness and in health. Check out the list of benefits that Signature offers:

  • Medical, dental, vision, disability, life insurance
  • Employee assistance program
  • 401K
  • Flexible Spending Accounts
  • Health Savings Account (HSA)
  • Weekly pay
  • Continuous placement program
  • Training and certification assistance
  • Identity Theft Protection Plan
  • Legal Assistance Plan
  • AFLAC
  • Pet Insurance

Medical

Signature Consultants offers 4 medical coverage options through Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plans with a national network of health care providers and lower out-of-pocket expenses when you use participating providers.

Dental

Our dental insurance program provides a choice between 3 Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) dental plans.

Vision

Signature Consultants offers vision insurance to help manage the cost of vision care. Vision Insurance covers routine eye care, including eye exams and eyeglasses (lenses and frames) or contacts.

Disability

Disability insurance helps protect employees and their families from unexpected financial hardship. This benefit continues a portion of an employee’s salary when medically approved illness or injury causes the employee to be out of work.

Life Insurance

Employees and their dependents may obtain additional life insurance coverage through post-tax payroll deductions. As a Signature employee, you may purchase up to $500,000, or five times your base annual earnings, whichever is less.

401(k)

The Signature 401(k) plan, administered by Wells Fargo, is a great way to save for your retirement. You may elect to defer your compensation by a specific percentage or dollar amount and have the amount contributed to the plan on a pre-tax basis as a salary deferral. You generally are not taxed on your salary deferrals until you withdraw those amounts from the plan.

Flexible Spending Accounts

Signature offers multiple FSA options including health care, limited healthcare, dependent care, and transit and parking. This allows employees to have certain expenses deducted from pay before tax to reduce taxable income.

Employees can contribute up to:

  • $2,600 annually for medical care
  • $5,000 annually for dependent care
  • $255 monthly for transit
  • $255 monthly for parking

If you have questions about any of these benefits, feel free to give me a call. I’ll personally assist you in whatever way I can.
