Health

Amundi Pioneer's benefit programs are an important part of our associates' total rewards package. We offer a comprehensive and flexible benefits program designed to support the diverse needs of associates and to give them and their families valuable resources to assist them in maintaining good health and well-being, in planning for retirement and balancing work and other life commitments. 

Medical

Amundi Pioneer associates may choose from several different group medical insurance plans, through Blue Cross Blue Shield, which include prescription drug coverage for themselves and their families. Amundi Pioneer currently shares the cost of medical insurance coverage. In New England, there are two choices for medical coverage: an HMO and a POS plan. Outside of New England, we offer two PPO plans. 

Dental

Amundi Pioneer currently offers two dental plans and shares in the cost of dental insurance coverage. Both plans provide coverage for preventive care and basic and major restorative care; one plan also includes orthodontia coverage. 

Life insurance

Amundi Pioneer automatically provides associates with basic life insurance, basic accidental death and dismemberment insurance and business travel accident insurance for their beneficiaries in the event of their death. Associates also have the option of purchasing additional levels of insurance coverage for themselves, for their spouse or for their children. 

Long term and short term disability

At no cost to them, associates are automatically enrolled in Amundi Pioneer's Long-Term Disability plan, which provides benefits when an associate has been fully disabled through a non-work-related illness or injury. During certain periods of non-work-related illness or injury, Amundi Pioneer provides short-term disability pay.

Retirement

Amundi Pioneer offers two retirement plans to help associates reach their future financial goals and prepare for retirement.

Savings and investment plan (401(k) Plan)

The Savings and Investment Plan, Amundi Pioneer's 401(k) Plan, is a tax effective and convenient way for associates to save for their retirement. Participants may contribute between 1% and 50% of their base pay on a pre-tax basis (subject to IRS limits.) The company will match 100% of the first 2.5% contributed to the Plan. Participants are always 100% vested in their own contributions including the Company match. Each Participant decides how to invest his/her contributions including the Company matching contributions.

Retirement benefit plan

Amundi Pioneer's Retirement Benefit Plan is designed to provide associates with additional financial resources during post-employment years. Amundi Pioneer makes a semi-annual contribution to each participant's account in order to fund a targeted annual benefit. Associates become eligible to participate in the Plan, and are automatically enrolled, the first calendar quarter following one year of service. Each participant chooses from among many investment options offered by the Plan and is vested int he benefit over a six-year vesting period.
