Benefits

MCC offers competitive benefits.

Health Insurance

The Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHB) is one of the most valuable benefits of federal employment.  Employees choose from multiple plan offerings within the first 60 days of employment.  The health plan’s premium, which varies from plan to plan, is deducted from the employee’s paycheck.

Life Insurance

Employees are typically automatically enrolled in the basic Federal Employee Group Life Insurance (FEGLI) program.  The coverage equals an employee’s annual basic pay rounded to the next higher thousand dollars then an additional $2000 is included.  Employees may opt out of the life insurance program or choose other coverage options.

Retirement

The Federal Employee Retirement System  (FERS) is a defined-benefit retirement system and employees are automatically registered.  MCC also matches 1 percent on your retirement.

Thrift Savings Plan

The Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) is a defined-contribution plan and employees may contribute any amount.  MCC contributes an additional four percent once employees are vested.

Transit Subsidy (Metrochek)

Employees are eligible for mass transportation subsidy of up to $110 per month if they use the subsidy for personal transportation to and from work and for parking.

Long-Term Care

Employees may purchase long-term care insurance for themselves and qualified family members.

Flexible Spending Account

Employees may participate in two types of flexible spending accounts:  Dependent care and health care. Both utilize pre-tax income to pay for benefits.

Dental & Vision Care

Employees may contribute to supplemental dental and supplemental vision care called FEDVIP on top of the FEHB coverage.

Annual Leave

Employees may earn up to 30 days of annual leave each year.

Sick Leave

Employees earn four hours of sick leave in each two-week pay period.  Sick leave may be used when you are sick, to care for family members who are sick, and for health care appointments.

On-Site Fitness Center

MCC has an on-site fitness center located at the Bowen Building —  875 Fifteenth Street and it is free of charge to employees.

Credit for Non-Federal Service
