Does Springfield Clinic offer a retirement plan to its employees?

Springfield Clinic knows how important it is for you to save for the future. As such, employees who are at least 18 years at time of hire, will be automatically enrolled into the 401(k) plan upon hire, at 6% pre-tax deferral rate, unless the employee opts out of the plan during the 30 day opt out period. Springfield Clinic also provides a generous employer contribution to eligible participants, in the form of an employer match of 1%, and a profit sharing contribution.

Is there a maximum rate I can contribute to my 401K?

Employees can defer up to 75% of eligible compensation, up to the maximums defined by the IRS.

Is enrollment automatic or is there a waiting period for insurance to begin?

Coverage is not automatic and there are forms that must be submitted to the Human Resource Department to enroll in all insurance coverage. Human Resources will provide these forms to eligible employees a few weeks before insurance is effective. The start date for all insurance coverage is the first day of the month following date of hire. To be eligible, an employee must be scheduled a minimum of 24 or more hours per week.

What happens to my insurance if I leave the Clinic?

COBRA law allows you and your family members to continue health coverage for up to 18 months, and possibly longer, under certain circumstances.

How and when do I get paid?

Springfield Clinic employees and physicians receive their compensation through direct deposit. Employees are paid bi-weekly, and usually have access to their paychecks by Friday, depending on when their particular bank posts the funds to their checking or savings account. Our pay week runs Thursday through the following Wednesday.

When am I evaluated and what happens as a result?

During your first year of employment, you will receive a performance review six months after your initial hire date, and on your first year's anniversary date. Thereafter, you will receive a performance review each year on your anniversary date. You will receive a merit increase that is reflective of your performance and your hourly rate will be adjusted as such.

Does Springfield Clinic provide opportunities for advancement?
