West Mont is proud to provide you with a summary of our benefits program. West Mont recognizes that benefits are an important part of a total compensation package, and because of this, we give our employees the opportunity to make selections that best meet their benefit needs. We strive to provide benefit choices that allow employees to custom tailor their benefits.
Eligible employees and dependent children of eligible permanent employees also qualified for Health Insurance, Health Savings Account, Supplemental Life Insurance, and AD&D after a 60-day period. All employees, regardless of full or part-time status are eligible upon date of hire to contribute to our 403(b) plan and after 90 days will begin to accrue personal leave and sick leave.
An added advantage of pretax is that premium payments you contribute for your benefits are automatically paid on a pretax basis. When you pay for your benefits with pretax dollars, you are reducing your taxable income.
Most benefit programs require contributions from employees, but many are primarily paid by the employer.
Health Insurance Plan Options
When you are eligible, you can enroll yourself and eligible dependents in a health insurance plan, with a term life insurance policy, that comes with a Health Savings Account Option. West Mont pays a portion of premium costs for the health plan chosen.
Supplemental Life Insurance and AD&D Insurance
Health Insurance enrollment includes Life Insurance and Accidental Death or Dismemberment disability benefits. An employee must carry dependent health insurance coverage in order for his or her dependents to be eligible for the life insurance benefit.
Health Savings Account
A Health Savings Account is an account that is owned by the individual and created from pre-tax contributions that can be used tax free as long as the distributions are used for qualified medical expenses.
West Mont is committed to helping you succeed not only at work, but in retirement with a 403(b) Retirement Plan. Pre-tax contributions are automatically taken from salary which gives your plan the potential to generate earnings, tax-deferred. West Mont will match up to 5% of contributions after 2 years of employment. At that time any money that West Mont puts in to the employees account is for them to keep, meaning at 2 years the employee is 100% vested.
West Mont allows employees to contribute a maximum of $2,650/year to a flex account to be used for medical purchases. This flex account is different than a Health Savings Account because you are only allowed to use the funds within the year you’ve elected, it does NOT carry over. You can choose to either utilize flexible spending or a Health Savings Account.
West Mont has developed an extensive training program in order to assure the safety and well-being of its clients and employees, in addition to assuring quality care. All required training and testing will be completed at the employer’s expense and will be ongoing throughout employment at West Mont.
Personal Leave/Sick Leave
Personal Leave is designed primarily for your rest and relaxation. This program allows you to manage your own time away from work. Personal Leave is available after completing three months of employment and accrues according to length of employment and/or work hours granted.
Employees are provided with six premium paid holidays each calendar year.
West Mont offers all employees the convenience of direct deposit. Employees are encouraged to have their bi-weekly paycheck direct deposited to the bank of their choice. Direct deposit is a safe, hassle free way to get checks deposited and avoid standing in line at the bank!
