Blanchard Group Insurance

Blanchard Machinery Company's health plan offers comprehensive benefits designed to give full-time employees and their dependents maximum health care protection. Full-time employees receive Life Insurance in an amount of 150% of basic rate of annual salary, up to a maximum of $50,000. Blanchard Machinery Company offers full-time employees the option of purchasing Dental Insurance, Long Term Disability Insurance, Short Term Disability, and Term Life Insurance for an additional cost.

401K Employee Savings/Retirement Plan

All employees age 18 and over are eligible to participate in the Employee Savings Plan on the first day of service. Employees that have completed one year of service and 1,000 hours with the company are eligible for the Company Match. In addition, the company may make a discretionary profit sharing contribution to the plan which the employee is eligible for after completion of one year of service and 1,000 hours with the company.

The Employee Savings Plan is designed to give employees the opportunity to take advantage of Section 401(k) of the Internal Revenue Code. Under this law, you save money for retirement on a pretax basis, thereby realizing significant tax savings at the same time as you’re saving for the future.

Company contributions are subject to a vesting schedule.

Workers' Compensation

Workers' Compensation benefits an employee if he/she sustains an injury or illness arising out of and in the course of employment. Benefits include medical expenses and, in case of disability, protection against total loss of income. Any injury, disease or death which is not job related will not be covered under Workers’ Compensation. The entire cost of Workers’ Compensation insurance is paid for you by Blanchard.
