Retirement Savings Plan
Crossroads offers pre-tax and Roth retirement plans through TIAA-CREF. Employees can participate in a traditional or a ROTH IRA retirement savings plan.
Crossroads will make contributions to the plan for new employees based upon the number of years of full time employment at a non-profit accredited educational institution to the Group Retirement Annuity. With no previous work experience at an educational institution, the contribution will match up to 1% of salary in years one and two, and then contribute 1% of salary without a match for the third year of service. For every year after 3 years of full-time service, the Crossroads contribution will increase by 1% per year, until it reaches a maximum of 8% in year 10.
Through Anthem Blue Cross, Crossroads pays the full premium for a Basic Life & AD&D life insurance policy, equal to the employee’s salary for up to a maximum of $50,000. Supplemental Life insurance is also available for purchase at a reduced group rate.
