MPW Employee Perks

The perks of being an MPW employee don’t stop at providing meaningful work for the community and collaborating with great people. We also offer competitive salaries and top-notch benefits packages including:


Pension Plan
While you’re employed by MPW, you earn a pension benefit.  The Utility contributes to the plan on your behalf.

457 Plan (like a 401k)
A Deferred Compensation 457 Plan is offered to employees who want to save money for retirement on a tax-deferred basis.  You can begin contribution with your first payroll period.

Medical insurance
As a full-time MPW employee, you’re offered excellent comprehensive health insurance, including spouse and eligible dependent coverage, at competitive rates.  You can choose from low deductible, high deductible, health saving accounts or flex spending accounts as well as a comprehensive vision plan.  Wellmark creates and publishes machine-readable files on behalf of Muscatine Power and Water’s Health Plan.  View MPW’s health plan files here.

Dental insurance
You’ll be offered dental coverage for you, your spouse, and your eligible dependents that has the power of a national network of providers backed by local service teams located here in Iowa.

Flexible spending accounts
Flexible Spending Accounts are a way for you to save money by setting aside pre-tax dollars to pay for out-of-pocket health care expenses for you, your spouse, and your eligible dependent’s approved medical care expenses.

MPW provides Life Insurance to you at no cost. You also have the option of purchasing additional Supplemental/Voluntary Life Insurance for you, your spouse,  and your eligible dependents.

Long-term disability coverage is designed to help you meet your financial needs if you become unable to work due to non-work-related injury or illness.

We know regular time away from work is essential to employees to recharge. MPW is proud to offer a competitive vacation package to promote work/life balance.

Because we value work-life balance and care about our employees being with family and friends on holidays, we grant 9 paid holidays each year.

Annually, you’ll be eligible for two personal days (16 hours) that will be granted each January 1 and can be taken in increments of one hour or more to allow you to relax and recharge.
