Benefits Eligibility:

Employees: All City of Georgetown employees scheduled to work at least 30 hours per week are eligible for voluntary benefits on the first day of the month following their date of hire.

    • As a new hire
    • When you have a qualifying life event
    • During Annual Open Enrollment
    • The City of Georgetown’s plan year runs from January 1 through December 31

Duplicate Coverage:

An individual is not covered if any of the below conditions apply:

    • As both a City employee and spouse for the same benefit
    • As both a City employee and a dependent
    • As a dependent for more than one City employee and/or City retiree for the same benefit

Qualifying Life Events:

Employees can add/remove a qualified dependent to their current plans during the year if they experience a qualifying life event within 30 days of the event.
