New employees have 30 days from their date of hire to sign up for insurance with the Department’s Benefit Coordinator. (See Assigned Staff below) Information about these plans is provided at the New Employee Orientation presented by Benefits/Risk Management of the CAO and can also be viewed at the related web site. The Benefit Coordinator completes the appropriate paperwork with the new employee and is available as a resource for any questions or necessary assistance.
Current employees desiring to make a change in insurance coverage may do so during open enrollment, which typically occurs during September or October for changes to be effective in January of the following year.
Employees experiencing a qualifying event (i.e., spouse experiencing a loss of insurance, birth of a child, etc.) are eligible to make changes to insurance coverage related to the qualifying event.
Any questions regarding County benefits, enrolling in benefit plans (including the alternative benefit option), contacts for optional benefits, open enrollment, and potential qualifying events should be directed to the Benefit Coordinator.
