Pension Plan In addition to the 401(k) Plan, Kemper Corporation sponsors a retirement plan that is not included on this statement: the Pension Plan. This Plan is a defined benefit plan that provides a retirement benefit to you based on your final average pay and total service with Kemper Corporation. Generally, your eligibility for this Plan is determined by your date of hire. All eligible employees are automatically enrolled in this Plan. Additional information can be obtained by contacting the Kemper Corporation Retirement Benefits Department Message Center at 1.800.230.5369.
Social Security, Medicare, Unemployment & Workers' Compensation Social Security & Medicare: Each year, you and Kemper Corporation both share the cost of FICA taxes (Social Security and Medicare). In 2011, your FICA withholding includes Social Security taxes of 4.2% on the first $106,800 of your compensation and Medicare taxes of 1.45% of your total compensation. Additionally, Kemper Corporation contributes 6.2% on the first $106,800 of your compensation toward Social Security taxes and 1.45% of your total compensation toward Medicare taxes. For more information or to receive a Social Security benefit estimate, contact the Social Security Administration at 1.800.772.1213 or ssa.gov. Unemployment Compensation: You are covered under federal and state unemployment compensation coverage, which provides you with partial compensation in the event you are laid off from work for reasons other than misconduct. If you terminate your employment with Kemper Corporation, you are either not covered, or the period of waiting for benefits is extended. If you qualify for coverage, your income subsidy will be based on a percentage of your earnings. Contact your state employment office for claims filing information. Workers' Compensation: You are covered by workers' compensation insurance in the event you are injured while working. If your accident results in death, your family will receive survivors' income. This coverage also applies to disability or death caused by a job related disease. Consult your state workers' compensation department or the Human Resources Department for claims information.
