The Atlanta Fed's Commitment to Employee Well-being

The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta is committed to helping promote each employee's physical, personal, financial, and professional well-being. To help employees and their families reach their well-being goals, the Bank makes it a top priority to provide a benefits program that is among the best available.

The Atlanta Fed’s benefits program emphasizes value, flexibility, convenience, and choice. Employees have the freedom to select the plans and programs that are right for them.

Our extensive offerings include:

Thrift Plan (401(k) plan)
Receive an employer matched contribution of $1 for every $1 you contribute up to the first six percent of salary per pay period, in addition to an automatic one percent employer contribution.
