About Benefits

Benefits to benefit you and the EPC. A change that began January 1, 2017, extends the EPC’s ability to look after your well-being by providing both insurance and retirement benefits for many years to come. This is the creation of a solely owned subsidiary of the EPC called EPC Benefit Resources, Inc. (BRI). BRI offers medical, dental, vision, term life, AD&D, long-term disability, and voluntary insurance benefits including accident and short-term disability. There are additional term life insurance options that can be purchased on an individual basis. BRI also will continue to administer the EPC Retirement Plan 403(b)(9) defined contribution plan with Fidelity Investments.

Whether you are presently covered by the EPC benefits or a potential participant, these resources are here to help you both evaluate EPC’s benefits programs and to answer your questions. We encourage you to read the various plan documents to learn more.
