Employee Benefits

Social Security

Employees must participate in the Federal Insurance Contributions Act program (FICA), commonly referred to as Social Security.  In addition to the normally understood retirement benefits, employees may also be eligible to enjoy the benefits of this program during periods of total disability which exceed six (6) months.  Benefits may also be paid to deceased participants’ families.  Specific benefit information is available from the Social Security Administration Office.  The Human Resources department may assist in obtaining specific information upon request.
