Financial and Career Planning Benefits

List of 4 items.

  • TIAA 403b Retirement Plan

    The School maintains both a Defined Contribution (matching) and Tax Deferred Annuity (non-matching) retirement plan for employees.
     
    An employee who has previously participated in a similar employer-sponsored retirement or pension plan, and is able to show proof thereof, is immediately eligible to join the School’s matching plan and receive an 8% employer match (employees must contribute 4% in order to receive the match).
     
    Employees without prior participation can join the non-matching plan immediately, and those who complete two (2) years of continuous, eligible service will then become eligible for the matching plan. 
  • Retirement Planning Seminars and Individual Counseling Sessions

    No matter what stage of your career you’re in, it is never too early, or too late, to start thinking about your financial future. Every year, a TIAA representative visits the School to give employees a presentation/Q&A session on how to plan for retirement. The representative also offers three days of on-campus, one-on-one counseling, where you can discuss retirement and general financial planning. 
  • Flexible Spending Accounts

    The School offers four (4) pre-tax flex spending accounts administered through Employee Benefits Corporation (EBC):
    • Medical
    • Dependent Care
    • Transit
    • Parking
  • Professional Development Opportunities

    Francis W. Parker School wholeheartedly supports and encourages ongoing development and training for our employees. In addition to on-campus workshop days during the school year, employees are also able to attend various seminars and conferences nationwide, such as the NAIS People of Color Conference (POCC) and many more.
