As an eligible employee, you have access to three plans: The Cultural Institutions Pension Plan, The Cultural Institutions Savings Plan (401k plan), and The Cultural Institutions Group Life and Welfare Benefits Plan (Group Life Plan).
The Pension Plan is a “defined benefit” plan designed to provide you with a monthly retirement income, typically payable over your lifetime, or yours and your spouse’s (or other beneficiary’s) lifetimes.
The Savings Plan is designed to help you supplement your retirement income by allowing you to contribute a percentage of each paycheck on a before-tax or after-tax basis,for as long as you remain an Eligible Employee.
