Health and Welfare Benefits
Medical and Vision Coverage
FHLB offers a Consumer Driven Health Plan ("CDHP") through Anthem. Employees and dependents enrolled in the medical plan are provided vision insurance, through EyeMed, at no cost. The CDHP offers a broad network of healthcare professionals and facilities. Coverage is offered the first of the month following employment. Dependent children may stay enrolled in the medical and vision plans to age 26.
Employees and dependents enrolled in FHLB’s CDHP may visit any of Marathon Health’s locations for acute, preventative or behavioral health care. Preventative visits are covered 100%. Other services provided with a small charge.
FHLB offers dental insurance through Dental Care Plus. Preventative visits are covered at 100% within the network. Dependent children may stay enrolled in the dental plan to age 26.
Health Savings Account
High deductible plans allow employees to open a Health Savings Account ("HSA"). FHLB provides a contribution to an employee’s HSA based on the plan and level of coverage elected when the account is with the FHLB sponsored HSA partner. Deductibles, co-insurance, prescription co-payments and other out of pocket expenses related to medical, dental or vision treatment may be paid with HSA dollars.
Flexible Spending Accounts
Transportation and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Accounts allow pretax dollars to be set aside to pay for eligible transportation and childcare expenses.
Employee Assistance Program
TriHealth's licensed staff and behavioral health professionals are available 24/7 to provide assistance with marital issues, depression, parenting issues, grief, relationship, work, anxiety, legal referrals and more. Employees and immediate family members are eligible for up to six free confidential counseling sessions.
401k Savings Plan
Employees may set aside a percentage of their earnings on a pre-tax or ROTH after-tax basis. The FHLB provides an immediate matching contribution (100% of the first 3%) upon enrollment into the Plan and the matching contribution increases after three years (150% of the first 3%) and five years (200% of the first 3%) of service. Matching contributions are fully vested after three years of service.
Employees are automatically enrolled in the FHLB sponsored pension plan on the first of the month following one year of service. The plan provides a retirement benefit based on earnings and service. Employees are fully vested after five years of service.

The program provides an annual incentive compensation award if the Bank meets specified performance targets each year. Award opportunity levels vary based upon position within the FHLB.
