Benefits Information


The City offers regularly appointed employees and their eligible dependents the choice between four medical plans, two dental plans and a vision plan. Most employees share in the cost of premiums for the medical plans (unless otherwise identified in a union contract). The City pays the premiums for dental coverage and the basic vision plan coverage.

Adding dependents? You'll be asked to verify your dependents' eligibility for City benefits.
