Benefit Overview

We appreciate the importance that group benefits play in your life. That's why the employees of Rice Lake Weighing Systems have access to a wide package of benefits including medical, dental, disability protection, life insurance, paid vacation and others.

Medical Insurance

Rice Lake Weighing Systems encourages individuals toward improved personal health. Staying healthy lets you enjoy life, live longer and helps our group reduce the need for costly health care services. Still, protection against unforeseen medical expenses for you and your family is a necessity today.

Dental Insurance

Smile everyone. Our voluntary dental program offers you a modular plan that provides a choice between two plans. Delta Dental is the largest dental network in Wisconsin with a free standing plan that allows you to choose your provider. Preventive care is 100 percent covered.

Flexible Spending Accounts

One of the most powerful benefits today, Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) provide you with the opportunity to use tax-free dollars to pay for:

  • Group Health Care
  • Group Dental Care
  • Uninsured Medical Expenses
  • Dependent Care Expenses

These dollars are deducted from your paycheck before federal and state income taxes are calculated. This tax savings increases your take home pay while helping to pay for other benefits.

Basic Life Insurance

Providing financial security for loved ones is a tough topic. With our Basic Life and Optional Life Insurance benefit programs, a tough topic gets easier. Our Basic Life plan provides $10,000 coverage on yourself, $5,000 for your spouse and $2,500 for each child to age 19. Basic Life is 100 percent company paid.

Optional Life Insurance

Our Optional Life plan provides you the opportunity to purchase coverage in $1,000 increments up to five times your annual salary and coverage is available for your spouse at 1/2 the amount of employee coverage. Coverage of $5,000 or $10,000 is also available on all children. This plan also includes Accidental Death and Dismemberment coverage to provide an added level of protection.

Short-Term Disability Insurance

The bills just keep coming even after you are disabled. Our Short-Term Disability provides you with income protection of 67 percent up to 13 weeks if you become totally disabled. This benefit is 100 percent paid for by Rice Lake Weighing Systems.

Long-Term Disability Insurance

Our optional Long-Term Disability provides you the opportunity to continue your protection should you have significant illness or injury.


The lake, mountains or Mickey are waiting for you. Our vacation program provides you with the opportunity for relaxation and recreation. Or, maybe just time to catch up on the laundry.


Partnering with AFLAC insurance, Rice Lake Weighing Systems provides you with a wide array of voluntary benefits you can choose based on your individual needs.


Enjoy the holidays, paid. We celebrate:

  • New Years Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day

Funeral Leave

To support you during a time of loss, Rice Lake Weighing Systems provides paid Funeral Leave. Also an additional Personal Leave program is available to help.

Jury Duty

As a good, corporate citizen, we encourage and support you if you are called to fulfill your civic responsibility as a juror. Our benefit pays you the difference between your jury duty pay and your normal work day's pay.

Educational Reimbursement

Life-long learning is supported at Rice Lake Weighing Systems. Formal course work related to your position can be pursued under our Educational Assistance Program. You are reimbursed 50 percent for tuition and books needed for the course.

Profit Sharing Plus

Manage your retirement with our Profit Sharing Plus plan. You can save in our 401k while we match 25 percent on the first 4 percent of your contributions up to 1 percent of your total compensation. On top of this, a profit sharing contribution is made by the company with a five-year vesting schedule. Daily record keeping of your account and an 800 number makes fund changes easy. Quarterly activity reports and an online investment counseling service help you reach your retirement goals.

The Rice Lake Area

The city of Rice Lake is the largest community in Barron county as well as northwest Wisconsin's regional business center. Residents enjoy a small community feel with opportunities for big adventure. From hiking and camping to fishing and water skiing, there is something for everyone in the beautiful blue hills.
