Fairview partners with Securian Financial for life insurance administration. Employees authorized to work 40 or more hours per pay period are eligible. Basic life insurance coverage is effective the first of the month following your date of hire, or on the first of the month if hired on the first of a month. Your coverage amount is equal to one times your annual salary to a maximum coverage level of $110,000.
The IRS requires that any life insurance benefit valued over $50,000 must be included in income and is subject to applicable taxes. If your annual salary exceeds $50,000, you will see the taxation on your paycheck. Optional life insurance coverage is available for purchase for you, your spouse, and dependent children. You may enroll in optional life insurance for up to six times your annual earnings to a maximum coverage of $1,250,000.
Please note: Life insurance rates for spouses are based on the Fairview employee’s date of birth.
AD&D insurance can be purchased as a supplement to employee optional life insurance. If you die as the result of an accident, your beneficiary will receive the amount of your AD&D coverage in addition to your basic and optional life insurance benefit. AD&D insurance may also pay all or a portion of your benefit if you are seriously injured in an accident.
It may be necessary to provide Evidence of Insurability (EOI) to obtain some levels of life insurance. Any coverage amount that requires EOI will not take effect until necessary approval is obtained through Securian. Coverage is subject to benefit reductions after age 70.
For employees authorized at least 64 hours per pay period, disability insurance provides salary continuance in the event that you become disabled and are unable to work.

All employees are eligible upon hire to contribute to a tax-deferred 403(b) retirement savings plan with Fidelity Investments. This includes casual-status employees who would normally not be eligible for benefits.
New hires will be automatically enrolled at a three percent contribution level on the first pay date following 30 days of employment.

Fairview also offers a Roth option, which allows you to contribute after-tax dollars to your account at Fidelity and make potentially tax free withdrawals in retirement.
For eligible employees meeting annual employer contribution requirements, Fairview contributes a discretionary amount equal to four percent of your compensation each year to the plan. In addition, any contributions an eligible employee makes, up to six percent of their compensation, will be matched at 50 percent. This means you could earn an additional three percent matching contribution from Fairview (for a total of up to seven percent employer contribution) if you contribute six percent or more to your retirement plan.
Eligible employees are at least 21 years of age and have completed one year of employment with at least 1,000 hours of service.
All employee contributions are immediately 100 percent vested. Fairview employer contributions are made annually, after the end of the year, and are subject to this vesting schedule.

Through the tuition reimbursement plan, Fairview recognizes the importance of continuing education. Courses are approved if:
Starting Jan. 1, 2020, Fairview will move to a direct pay model called Tuition Assistance for eligible educational institutions. This means that Fairview will work directly with the learning institution to pay before you start class. You do not need to pay up front and get reimbursed later. If your educational institution does not participate in Tuition Assistance, you may still be eligible for reimbursement through this program. A two-year employment commitment applies to employees receiving a benefit from this program.
