Federal careers are renowned for their exceptional employment benefits, and a career with AFCS is no different. Our health insurance program is a nationally recognized model that offers you choice and flexibility along with a substantial employer contribution to premiums, and you can pay your share of premiums as well as your out-of-pocket costs with pre-tax dollars. You will also be able to choose among several options for life insurance coverage for both you and your family members and have the option to participate in the largest group long-term care insurance program in the country. Our three-part retirement program includes a Social Security benefit, a 401(k) type plan, and a defined benefit component based on years of employment and salary history.
All of these benefits are what we call “portable,” meaning that whatever benefits you accrue with us will transfer to other Federal agencies if you decide to leave AFCS. Furthermore, if your career choices take you to the private sector, those benefits will largely remain intact awaiting your return to employment with AFCS or any other Federal Government agency.
