Benefits Plan Information
You will find important information about your health and wellness benefits, and the tools you need to make decisions for you and your covered family members. Be sure to contact your department's benefits representative if you have questions.

Dependent Eligibility Verification Process:
The initial dependent eligibility verification process ended August 29. Over 14,900 dependents of City employees were verified as eligible for City benefits. Thank you for your participation!*

If you added a dependent after May 19, you will receive a letter from Aon Hewitt, the City's business partner, in October with the names of your dependents, the documentation you will need to provide for each, submission instructions, and the due date. Visit the City's Dependent Eligibility Verification web page for more information or to find previous communications. If you've already submitted your documents, thank you for getting them in on time!

*If you did NOT fully verify your dependents, you will receive a letter in mid-September about dependent coverage termination effective September 30 and the appeals process. Please respond immediately -- the City wants all eligible dependents to remain on City benefits.

Same-Sex Married City Employees
IRS recognizes same-sex couples, legally married in jurisdictions that recognize their marriages, as married for federal tax purposes. On June 30, 2014, most state-registered, same-sex domestic partnerships will be converted to marriages. Learn more about how the ruling affects your tax status and City benefits.
