TCT will pay $615.90 per month toward the employee health insurance premium as a fringe benefit each year. Employees who elect premiums less than $500.00 are permitted to apply remaining balance towards another benefit-dependent medical, vision, dental coverage, Health Savings Account (if enrolled in a High Deductible Health Plan), or cash.
Employees who elect insurance premiums over $615.90 will be responsible for the overage. Employees who are covered by an ACA approved group medical plan (other than that offered by Tri County Tech), have the option to receive a salary in lieu of the $500.00 per month benefit.
Employees who work less than a full-year will have benefits prorated, where applicable. This will be discussed with each employee when he or she completes the New Employee Orientation.

All new parents, adoptive or biological, may request up to six 6 weeks paid time off following the adoption or birth of a child (“Qualifying Event”).
