Got Life Insurance?

Although employees may apply for supplemental life insurance at any time, open enrollment is an excellent time to assess your current supplemental coverage levels. Please note that all units have a City paid basic life insurance policy. Amounts are as follows:

  • Units 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 13, 16 - $20,000
  • Units 10, 11, 12, 14, 17, 18 - $50,000
If you would like to apply for additional life insurance (maximum of $200,00 for employee and $50,000 for spouse/domestic partner) for you or your spouse/domestic partner, please click HERE to get the Evidence of insurability form. Complete and mail to the VOYA address on the form.  It's that simple!

Flexible Spending Plans

You can set aside up $520 to $2,600 of pre-tax money to help pay for eligible medical and $520 to $5,000 for dependent care expenses.  Most over-the-counter drugs are no longer eligible for reimbursement under the Health FSA Plan, unless you have a prescription as a result of the Health Care Reform Law. There are no changes to the dependent care spending accounts.
