The Best Benefits in the Business

Medical and dental are just the beginning. We value our employees and offer benefits packages that also include profit sharing, retirement savings, life/work balance, scholarships and tuition reimbursement, unlimited growth potential and a no-layoff practice.

We offer the following benefits to our teammates:

Job Security

If you do your job today, you can have confidence that you’ll have a job tomorrow. Nucor has a long standing practice of not laying off teammates due to lack of work.

Profit Sharing

Our profit sharing program sets aside at least 10 cents out of every dollar that Nucor earns before taxes. So far Nucor has paid out over $2 billion to Nucor teammates.

Retirement Savings Plan

Invest today for what you plan to accomplish tomorrow, with matching contributions and tax savings now, plus after-tax contributions for tax-free withdrawals during retirement.


Our scholarship program helps every child of every Nucor teammate to go to college with $4,000 per year for 4 years. We’ve paid out over $97 million to date.

Medical, Dental & Eye Coverage

Our comprehensive medical plan has low premiums, no deductible and an out-of-pocket expense limit based on a percentage of your earnings.

Tuition Reimbursements

We will reimburse up to $5,250 of your approved education expenses each year. We’ll also reimburse your spouse up to $2,625 per year for a maximum of 2 years.

Unlimited Growth Potential

We have a strong policy of promoting from within. This gives teammates almost limitless growth and flexibility when choosing their career path.

Paid Parental Leave

Our parental leave is designed to support parents by providing additional flexibility as you grow and nurture your family.
