AMERICORPS MEMBER BENEFITS

Full-time members (1700 hours, approximately 40 hours a week) will receive a $15,100 living allowance, paid in 23 equal installments on the 15th and 30th of each month.  Workers compensation insurance will be provided. Group health insurance is available for full-time members who do not have health insurance or do not qualify for Medicaid. A childcare subsidy is available for qualified full-time members. Unemployment coverage is not included. 

Half-time members (900 hours, approximately 20 hours a week) will receive a $7,550 living allowance, paid in 23 equal installments on the 15th and 30th of each month.  Workers compensation insurance will be provided.  

AmeriCorps members will receive a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award upon the successful completion of their term of service.  The educational award for full-time members is equivalent to the federal Pell Grant amount for that year. The award amounts are subject to change annually. In the 2020-2021 program year, the award was $6,345 for full-time members and $3,172.50 for half-time members.  Members with uncompleted service terms or uncompleted hours, or who have not submitted all required program materials, will not receive an educational award. The educational award can be used for tuition at most colleges, technical, and vocational schools, or for the repayment of qualified, federal student loans. Members 55 or older may choose to transfer their award to a child or grandchild. AmeriCorps members are only allowed to receive educational awards for the equivalent of 2 full-time service terms (or 4 half-time terms).

Members’ qualified student loans can be deferred during AmeriCorps service, with the accumulated loan interest paid by AmeriCorps at the end of the deferred period.
