The Catholic Health Initiatives Retirement Plan is designed to help employees prepare for the years beyond their careers. Each year, Catholic Health Initiatives will make a contribution varying from 5 percent to 10 percent to the employee’s retirement plan account. The contribution varies based on years of vesting service earned while employed at CHI and annual eligible pay. Employees also earn interest on their account balance. Employees receive one year of vesting service for each calendar year in which the employee is paid for at least 1,000 hours of service. After five years of vesting service, the employee is vested in the CHI Retirement Plan account.
The Catholic Health Initiatives Employee Savings Plan, a 403(b) plan, enables employees to save for retirement now and pay taxes later by investing a portion of their eligible pay in the plan. The plan offers a wide array of investment options, as well as lifecycle funds.
Tuition assistance is designed to encourage and assist employees to pursue educational objectives that will aid the employee in their current position or a future position. Scholarships are also available to employees through various departments within our organization.
