Open enrollment is the time period in which employees can make changes to their current benefit elections. This typically occurs in October each year. The only time you are able to make a change to your benefits outside of open enrollment is if you experience a qualifying life event. Should you experience a life event during the plan year, please contact Human Resources.
Eligible employees include any individual employed in a position classified as Regular Full-Time (40 - 53 hours per workweek) or Regular Part-Time (27 - less than 40 hours per workweek). Individuals classified as Part-Time (less than 27 hours per week), Seasonal, Variable, On-Call, or Elected are not eligible for most benefits.
Eligible Dependents include the following:
Your spouse (including those defined as common-law, and same-sex legally married)
Children under the age of 26 (yours or your spouse’s)
Dependent children of any age who are handicapped or totally disabled
Children under your legal guardianship
When adding dependents, supporting documents may be required to prove dependency. A list of acceptable dependent documents can be obtained by contacting the City’s Human Resources department.
