At CoBank, our people are our greatest competitive advantage

Our customers count on our associates every day. It’s important to us to keep you well and happy, so that you can continue to grow, thrive, and make an impact on our success. That’s why we offer flexible, market-competitive and cost-effective health, welfare, and retirement plans that can help you manage life’s many demands outside of work.

Health & Wellness

  • Our goal is to provide benefits that drive a focus on wellness and prevention.
  • Medical plan options feature progressive and consumer-driven high-deductible plans that include a bank-provided health savings account subsidy.
  • Dental, vision, and life insurance plus short- and long-term disability coverage round out our medical offerings.

Financial Benefits

  • Associates are immediately vested in our generous 6% matching 401(k) program.
  • CoBank makes a 3% non-elective retirement account contribution each payroll period, in addition to any match received. Associates are fully vested after five years.
  • Relocation assistance may be provided for eligible new hires, based on position level and relocation needs.
  • Associates enjoy discounts on everything from cell phones and flowers to automobiles and computers.


  • We believe that each of our associates contributes to our overall success.

Payments under the plan are awarded based on a combination of individual and corporate results.
