Benefits and Perks

Benefits ... We’ve got you covered.

Following is a summary of the benefits offered at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. 

Medical, Prescription Drug, Dental, and Vision

Employees have the opportunity to elect medical/prescription drug, dental, and vision coverage that provides affordable, comprehensive services for themselves and their families

Health Savings Account (HSA) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs)

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a tax-advantaged account that employees can use to pay for qualified health care expenses incurred while enrolled in a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). If employees enroll in the HDHP, the Chamber will make a quarterly contribution to the HSA based on the level of HDHP coverage chosen.

The Chamber offers both a Health Care Flexible Spending Account (HCFSA) and a Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (DCFSA). The HCFSA helps pay for qualified expenses not reimbursed by medical, prescription drug, dental, or vision plans with tax-free dollars. The DCFSA allows employees to set aside pretax dollars for reimbursement of qualified child care or elder care expenses.

Disability

The Chamber provides both short- and long-term disability to employees who experience a personal, nonwork-related illness or injury that prevents them from being able to work.  

Life and Accidental Death and Dismemberment

The Chamber provides a core amount of life and accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) at no cost to employees. Employees can purchase additional life and AD&D insurance for themselves, as well as coverage for their spouse and dependent children. 

Personal and Sick Leave

The Chamber provides generous time-off benefits to meet a variety of needs. Sick leave provides time off for personal illness or preventative care, a family member’s illness or preventative care, bereavement or funeral leave, and other reasons allowable under federal, state, and/or local laws. Personal leave provides employees time off for vacation, volunteering, and other personal reasons not provided under sick leave. 

Holidays

The Chamber provides 11 paid holidays per calendar year, including a Chamber-designated floating holiday.

401(k) Plan

The Chamber offers a SMART 401(k) Plan to its employees, administered by Fidelity Investments. Employees can contribute their own money on a pretax basis and receive a Chamber-matching contribution up to 4%. After one year of service, the Chamber will make a Chamber-funded contribution even if the employee is not personally contributing.
