Last Updated: May 20, 2020

Our exceptional team at the FDIC is the key to fulfilling our important mission. We take pride in offering our employees highly competitive compensation, a generous benefits program, and extensive career development opportunities.

Federal Employee Benefits

The FDIC offers the Federal Employees Health (FEHB) Insurance Program, which provides employees a range of options to meet their needs. In fact, FEHB provides the widest selection of health plans in the country. Employees also have access to the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Program (FEDVIP) and Federal Employees Group Life Insurance (FEGLI).

FDIC Choice

The FDIC Choice flexible benefits program offers employees access to alternative dental and vision coverage, as well as life insurance, long-term disability, and flexible spending accounts for healthcare, dependent care, and parking.

Retirement Savings

The FDIC offers its employees a number of options for retirement savings. In addition to the Federal Retirement System and the Federal Thrift Savings Plan, FDIC employees can participate in the FDIC Savings Plan, a 401(k) plan that allows employees to make tax-deferred contributions for retirement.

Time Off and Flexible Schedules

The FDIC offers a generous number of paid holidays, as well as annual vacation and sick leave. We also offer a number of alternative work schedules and a telework program to help employees achieve a work/life balance.

The FDIC compensates its employees generously, based on established pay tiers for each position and taking into account employees’ salary history. Visit the Compensation Details page to learn more.
