We support the inclusion of all employees and we embrace those characteristics that make each of us who we are. Our reasoning is simple: In this way, we believe we can be a workplace considered by all colleagues as an excellent career choice and a great place to work.
JPMorgan Chase offers competitive benefits. The benefit program includes additional employee programs and services.
Here are some highlights*:
401(k) Savings Plan
We understand the importance of planning for the future; that's why the firm offers a 401(k) Savings Plan. Joining the 401(k) Savings Plan is completely voluntary. If you participate, you decide how much to contribute to your account and how your savings should be invested. You contribute on a before-tax basis, or on an after-tax basis through Roth 401(k) contributions. Generally, most participants who complete one year of service are eligible to receive JPMorgan Chase & Co. matching contributions.
Fully paid for by the firm, the Retirement Plan provides you with a foundation for your retirement income. Your participation in the plan is automatic after you complete one year of total service. Your benefit is expressed as a cash balance that grows in a bookkeeping account over time through pay credits and interest credits.
Our Medical and Dental Plans offer you and your eligible dependents a variety of healthcare options that provide a range of quality and flexible coverage based on where you live. Our Vision Plan offers coverage for expenses such as eye examinations, lenses (including contact lenses), and eyeglass frames.
Before-tax healthcare spending accounts
Under the Health Care Spending Account, you can contribute between $240 and $8,000 a year on a before-tax basis to pay for eligible out-of-pocket health care expenses such as:
Life & accident insurance
Our Life & Accident Insurance Plans provide you with the security that comes from knowing you have a complete package of insurance protection suited to your personal situation. The Life & Accident Insurance Plans offer you a range of different types of coverage, so you can choose the most appropriate life, accident, and survivor protection for your individual needs. The plans include:
Our Long-Term Disability Plan can provide you with income replacement if you are unable to work for an extended period of time due to an illness or injury. Your LTD coverage generally pays a benefit after you have exhausted your coverage under the Short-Term Disability Leave Policy.
Employee stock purchase
We invest in our people for the long term and want them to be rewarded for investing in us. Our Employee Stock Purchase Plan encourages you to become an owner of JPMorgan Chase & Co. by providing you with the ability to purchase the firm's common stock at a 5% discount and without paying a broker's fee. We also offer the chance for your stock ownership to grow through automatic reinvestment of dividends.
EAP & Work-Life Program
You've got a lot going on in your life and JPMorgan Chase & Co.'s EAP & Work-Life program is here to help you. EAP & Work-Life, our work-life resource and referral program, is one way to help deal with the questions, pressures and issues you face as a working parent, someone concerned with the well being of older relatives, running a household, navigating the college application process, mental health issues, or any work-life need you may have. Designed with your needs in mind, EAP & Work-Life delivers practical solutions, information, advice and support. EAP & Work-Life offers free, confidential assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with the issues of daily living. You and your family members are eligible for five free counseling sessions per issue.
Maternity and paternity leave
We are committed to supporting parents when they welcome a newborn or adopted child into their home. Under our Parental Leave policy, eligible employees are provided with time off with full pay so that they can care for and bond with their new child.
Back-up childcare services
The goal of our Back-up Childcare Center Network is to provide the highest quality back-up care for children when their families' existing childcare arrangements break down (e.g. regular caregiver is unavailable or school is closed) and the employee must be at work. The Back-up Childcare Centers are intended to supplement rather than replace regular childcare arrangements. Bright Horizons Network Access Program is part of the Back-up Care Advantage Program. We have partnered with Bright Horizons to offer availability at over 250 community childcare centers across the United States. Employees looking for fulltime care will receive priority access to open spaces and discounted registration fees in some cases.
We offer financial support to eligible employees in order to help offset the high cost of adopting a child. The firm's Adoption Assistance Program may reimburse you for up to $10,000 in qualified expenses, per child, when you adopt a child under the age of 18, (or an individual who is 18 years of age or older, where that individual is incapable of self-care because of a permanent physical or mental disability), including the child of your spouse or domestic partner, or a child who is related to you.
Tuition reimbursement for top performers
Our Tuition Assistance Program provides financial support to help you reach your goals and offset the cost of a college education. The program is designed for high-performing employees for work-related educational development. An employee's degree program must be job-related and aligned with the employee's position and overall development plan. Tuition assistance is an investment in the professional growth of key employees who have proven themselves to be high performers - and whose value to the company will be enhanced through receiving an advanced degree.
Pre-tax transportation spending accounts for commuting and parking
The Transportation Spending Accounts allow you to pay for eligible commutation and/or parking expenses through payroll deductions. All or a portion of that expense can be paid on a before-tax basis up to the monthly legal limit-effectively reducing your commutation costs. If your commuting expenses exceed this amount, the balance of the cost will be deducted from your pay on an after-tax basis.
Arts and Culture Employee Benefits Program
JPMorgan Chase employees can receive reduced or free admission at cultural institutions just by showing your company ID card, as part of our 'Arts and Culture Employee Benefits' program. In New York, choose from major theaters, museums, galleries, gardens, zoos, and other cultural attractions.
