The VA ensures and encourages a healthy work/life balance by providing physicians with a robust benefits package and fostering an environment where more time is spent on medical practice and less on business tasks. VA does this by offering:
Ample paid time off
The elimination of billing hassles
Long-term relationships with patients
At the end of the day, VA physicians feel good about their jobs and their ability to balance work and home life, which means our Veterans receive the best care.
Paid Time Off:
26 Days paid annual (vacation/personal) leave – you can carry over up to 86 days into a new year
13 Days paid sick leave per year with unlimited carry over! Unused sick leave can be used to extend creditable service time at retirement!
10 Federal holidays with pay
5-Day paid absence to attend approved CME courses (BC permanent physicians are eligible)
Health Insurance: VA employees have an outstanding number of health insurance plans to choose from (premiums are partially paid by VA)
Dental & Vision: Our insurance options also include exceptional vision and dental plans
Flexible Spending Accounts: Use tax-free dollars to pay for medical, dental, and vision care expenses
Term life insurance, family, and additional coverage options are available with the cost shared by the Federal Government.
Long-term care insurance is available as an option
Federal Retirement Plan:
Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) - A three-tiered retirement plan composed of 1) Social Security benefits; 2) FERS-FRAE basic benefits (pension); and 3) Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) which is a 401K-type plan
How is the pension funded? VA employees hired after January 1, 2014 automatically contribute 4.4% of their salary each pay period and the VA contributes 8.3% of the employee's salary each pay period for a total annual contribution percentage equal to 12.7% of the employee's salary
Similar to the 401(k) savings plans widely available in the private sector, the TSP allows employees to tax defer a portion of their income each year, subject to the requirements of the Internal Revenue Service. For calendar year 2016, employees under the age of 50 may contribute up to $18,000, while those over age 50 are eligible to make catch-up contributions that allow them to defer up to $24,000
The Federal Government also provides an automatic basic contribution (1% of salary) and up to 4% of salary in matching contributions, depending on the amount of the employee contribution
For retired military personnel, these benefits are in addition to full monthly retirement pay or pension
In addition to FERS, VA provides health care insurance coverage for retired personnel
