The SCC offers a comprehensive benefits package and the flexibility to choose benefits that fit your needs. Our salaried employees participate in the Commonwealth of Virginia Employee Benefits Program and currently receive the following key benefits:

Group Life Insurance/Optional Life Insurance

Basic Group Life Insurance becomes effective on your first day of employment at no cost to the employee. The insurance provides natural death, accidental death, and dismemberment coverage. Coverage is the equivalent of two times the employee's annual salary for natural death, and four times the employee's annual salary for accidental death.

You may choose to supplement your Basic benefits by adding Optional Life Insurance coverage for yourself, your spouse, and/or your children. You are responsible for paying the premiums through payroll deductions.

Membership in the Virginia Retirement Plan is automatic with options for tax-deferred retirement savings, including employer matching. Employees become vested with the accumulation of five years of credited service. You can find additional information from the Virginia Retirement System.

Retirement Group Life Insurance/Optional Life Insurance

Basic Group Life insurance continues at no cost to you after retirement, provided you have five continuous years of service. Life insurance begins to reduce after retirement until it is 25 percent of the amount of coverage at retirement. Accidental death and dismemberment coverage cease at retirement.

You may choose to continue Optional Group Life insurance into retirement if you have had optional coverage for five continuous years prior to retirement.

Eligible employees receive sick leave, family and personal leave, and short and long-term disability benefits. The program provides up to ten days of sick leave and up to five days of family and personal leave per year, based on the employee's length of service (with no carry-over from year to year) and up to 125 workdays of short-term disability coverage. The number of days of income continuation depends on the employee's length of state service at the time of disability.

Family and Medical Leave Act

Eligible employees are provided with up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave due to the birth of a child, or for adoption or foster care of a child, or to provide care for a family member (child, spouse, or parent) with a serious health condition, or because the employee's own serious health condition makes him or her unable to do his or her job. Employees are able to use their paid-time-off to receive pay during these periods.

Parental Leave

Eligible employees may receive up to eight (8) weeks (320 hours) of paid parental leave to be used within six (6) months of the birth of an infant(s) or adoptive, foster, or custodial placement for a child(ren) under the age of eighteen (18).
