Financial Well-Being

Financial well-being means managing your money in a way that gives you security and peace of mind. Spending wisely, saving money for emergencies, borrowing responsibly and planning for the future are the key factors in achieving financial wellness. The Choctaw Nation offers several options to keep you on the right path.
Casino Management Associate


We are proud to offer a 401(k) to all associates, full-time and part-time, who are 18+. This retirement plan aims to give CNO associates more control over how they save for their financial futures. The Choctaw Nation also offers a 5% match for anyone who contributes at least 6% of their eligible pay to the 401(k) and who works at least 1,000 hours in their first year.
Nurse associate


Health Savings Accounts (HSA’s) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA’s) can be valuable assets in your healthcare toolbelt. These benefits save you money by allowing you to set aside pre-tax dollars to help cover health expenses like copays, deductibles, pharmaceutical needs and more. Associates who are eligible to participate in an HSA or FSA can determine the amount they contribute.


This voluntary benefit allows you to access your pay when you need it most and plan for the future. You can request up to 50% of your next paycheck and receive funds in seconds. You can also manage your savings contributions and budget through the Even free app.
