Health Plans
Whirlpool offers two consumer-driven health plan options, including a Health Savings Account and a Rewards Plan.

Wellness Programs
Whirlpool takes your health seriously. The following programs are available to help you get healthy and stay healthy.
  • Yearly health assessments help you identify your current health status
  • Health coaches offer advice on weight management, exercise, stress and other health issues
  • Flu shots
  • Employee Assistance Plan (EAP) offers professional counseling for personal issues, and work/life programs help you deal with the challenges of life’s demands
Vision Plan
The Whirlpool vision plan offers coverage for eye exams, frames, lenses and contacts through the Vision Service Plan (VSP).

Dental Plan
The Whirlpool dental plan offers free preventive care and pays a portion of the cost of other dental expenses, including orthodontia.

Protection

Whirlpool offers a suite of benefits to help protect you and your family financially if the unexpected happens. These plans offer a cost-effective way to benefit from valuable coverage you might not buy on your own during your early working years.

Employee and dependent life insurance, as well as accident insurance, are the central components of our protection plans. Short-term and long-term disability plans round out the program, keeping a paycheck coming if you become ill or injured and cannot work for an extended period of time.

Time Off

We know employees who enjoy the right balance between work life and home life are more productive and effective in both places. That’s why we offer competitive vacation, paid holiday and personal leave policies. Benefits are generally based on years of service with the company. Students beginning their careers with Whirlpool won’t have summers off anymore, but they’ll still have time to pursue hobbies and enjoy time to themselves throughout the year.

401K

Financial experts agree: the best way to be ready for the future is to start saving as soon as you can. Our 401(k) Savings Plan offers a tax-deferred method of setting money aside automatically each month. The company provides an
automatic contribution of 3% of eligible pay each year, that may be paid in Whirlpool common stock.  Whirlpool matches 100% of the first 3% of salary deferrals and 50% of the next 2%.    These contributions are pre-tax, and earnings on the investments are tax deferred.

The Whirlpool retirement plan offers a variety of investment fund choices to give your savings earning power. What if you leave Whirlpool down the road? You take with you the full value of your contributions, the portion of Whirlpool contributions you own (based on years of service) and any earnings from all investments through the plan.

Believe it or not, there’s more to benefits at Whirlpool than insurance, retirement and time off. The following special programs support our employees as they strive to create a healthy balance in their lives.
