Dental Coverage

The Town of Greenwich Dental Plans are administered by Cigna. Employees should consult their Collective Bargaining Agreement for information regarding their Dental Plan.  Dental Plan summaries are available through the ADP Portal.


Flexible Spending Account (FSA)

A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is a special account you put money into that you use to pay for certain out-of-pocket health care and dependent care costs.  You don’t pay taxes on this money, it comes out of your paycheck pre-tax.  This means you’ll save an amount equal to the taxes you would have paid on the money you set aside.  Both accounts (health care and dependent care) are “use-it or lose it” and run on the calendar year.  The Town’s FSA accounts are administered by Stirling Benefit.

401(k) Savings Plan  

The 401(k) Retirement Savings Plan is a retirement savings vehicle for full-time employees and part-time employees in the Teamsters union of the Town of Greenwich.  Employees may log on to the Empower Retirement website or call Empower Retirement at 800-701-8255 to view their account balance.  Town matching funds may be available for voluntary contributions.  Employees should consult their union’s collective bargaining agreement for match information.  


457 (b) Deferred Compensation Plan

The 457(b) plan was established as a supplemental retirement savings program for all employees, including part-time employees of the Town of Greenwich.  Employees may log on to the Empower Retirement website or call Empower Retirement at 800-701-8255 to view their account balance. Town matching funds may be available for voluntary contributions. Employees should consult their union’s collective bargaining agreement for match information.  


Defined Benefit Pension Plan

The Town of Greenwich offers a Defined Benefit Pension Plan to eligible employees. The provisions of the plan can be found in Article 14 of the Town Charter and the union collective bargaining agreement. The Plan provides and guarantees a defined payment for participants based on the employee's pensionable compensation, rate of benefit determined by the collective bargaining agreement, years of service, and whether or not you have contributed fully to the Plan.  The Retirement Board serves as Trustees of the Defined Benefit Pension Plan.  


Long Term Disability 

Long Term Disability (LTD) is a form of income replacement if an employee is absent from work due to illness or injury for an extended period of time (90 -180 days).  LTD is provided for some full-time employees by MetLife at the Town’s expense in an amount determined by the employee’s Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).  Employees should consult their CBA to determine if they are eligible for LTD.  LTD Certificates are available through the ADP Portal.      

 

Life Insurance

Basic Life Insurance is provided for full-time employees by MetLife at the Town’s expense in an amount determined by the employee’s Collective Bargaining Agreement.  Employees may have the option to purchase additional life insurance through MetLife based on amounts set forth in their Collective Bargaining Agreement.  

 

Employee Assistance Program

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is a voluntary, work-based program that offers free and confidential assessments, short-term counseling, referrals, and follow-up services to employees and their family members who have personal and/or work-related problems.
