Furst offers a Wellness and Preventive Plan – with a premium paid directly by employees – that covers wellness and preventative services, such as immunization and routine health screening only. This plan is in compliance with ACA rules and regulations, but it does not cover medical services or conditions caused by accident or illness. Enrolling in the MEC Wellness/Preventive Plan satisfies the Individual Mandate, and you will not be taxed for failing to purchase insurance required by the Affordable Care Act. This plan does not allow you to receive a subsidy from the Health Insurance Exchange. Click HERE to view information on Wellness and Preventive Plan benefits.
If you elect to have the medical insurance coverage, you will also have the option to select other benefits, including:
Term Life Insurance

We highly encourage employees to sign up for direct deposit.

This saves time and helps us do what we can for the environment.
The Illinois Secure Choice program is a state-sponsored retirement program that provides a Roth Individual Retirement Arrangement (IRA) to employees who do not have access to a retirement savings plan through work. It provides a simple way to automatically save a part of each paycheck into your own IRA. The account stays with you if you change jobs and allows for a customizable savings rate and investment elections to fit your savings needs.
Once you receive notification from Illinois Secure Choice, you have three options:
1. Register – After you’ve set up your account, you can customize your savings and investment elections, add beneficiaries, make a withdrawal, or manage your personal information at any time.
2. Do Nothing – If no action is taken, you will be automatically enrolled with the default savings and investment elections after 30 days.
3. Opt Out – If you do not want to participate in the program, you can opt out at any time online by filling out the Opt Out form or calling the Client Service Team.
