Employee Benefits


A commitment to work/life balance inspires MISO’s industry-leading benefits package. Full-time employees will find all the tools and benefits they need to achieve healthy minds, bodies, finances and more. And, there’s no waiting period. Full-time employees are eligible for benefits on their first day.


Benefits for Your Health


Take control of your health with our wellness benefits. MISO offers full-time employees multiple plan options for health and dental coverage. If critical illness threatens your family, you may voluntarily purchase incremental critical illness coverage for further peace of mind.


Choose from additional health-related coverage options like our comprehensive vision care plan, which includes annual eye exams as well as lenses frames or contact lenses for you and your dependents.



Benefits for Your Wealth

Build a secure financial future by selecting from a suite of investment and retirement plans. All new full-time employees get automatically enrolled in our 401k plan, and they immediately qualify for our profit sharing plan, which allows MISO to contribute to employees’ retirement accounts.


As a full-time employee, you also may want to invest pre-payroll tax dollars into flexible spending accounts to minimize your tax burden and help manage healthcare and dependent care expenses.


Benefits for Your Protection


Let MISO help protect you and your family in case of the unexpected. Full-time employees qualify for:

  • Short-term disability coverage at 100 percent of employee’s salary for up to 90 days and long-term disability coverage at a percentage of employee’s salary, both of which are 100 percent employer paid
  • No-cost basic life insurance plus the option to voluntarily upgrade policies for yourself or a spouse
  • Travel insurance for those who travel on company business
  • No-cost accidental death and dismemberment insurance (up to $700,000 in coverage)


Benefits for Your Personal Life


Nothing helps balance your personal and work lives like time away from the office. MISO provides the following paid time off benefits to full-time employees:

  • Nine paid holidays
  • Three floating holidays
  • Roll-over sick days
  • Generous vacation days

Start your employment with MISO at any time and we’ll prorate your paid time off.


Employees who wish to continue their education may qualify for tuition assistance. Designated funds also help reimburse full-time employees for education relevant to their current position.
