BalancePoint strives to offer benefits to our consultants that enable them to maintain a work-life balance. With that we offer the following benefits to our full time consultants. The term “full time consultant” is defined as a consultant who works 30 hours or more per week at all times during his or her employment.
BalancePoint consultants are paid every other Friday, one week in arrears.
A consultant is eligible for holiday pay upon commencement of the first day of employment if they chose this benefit as part of their hiring package.

If a holiday falls on a Saturday, consultants take the previous Friday off for the holiday, if it falls on a Sunday, consultants take the following Monday off.

These programs offer our consultants the option to open state sponsored 529 Education Savings plans for their children or family members. The state sponsored 529 plans provide a tax-advantaged way to invest for college. These accounts can be set up directly through Learning Quest and the MOST program, and can be deducted from a consultant’s bi-weekly pay check.

Consultants are eligible to enroll for 401k during the quarterly open enrollment period following their completion of 6 months. BalancePoint offers a match of up to 50% of the consultant’s contribution, to a maximum of 2%. Therefore, if a consultant contributes 4%, BalancePoint will match it at 2%. Merrill Lynch is the company that handles BalancePoint 401k funds. Additional details are provided at the time of employment.
