A few words about benefits
Health benefit choices are some of the most important decisions you and your family will make during the start of your employment with the City of Tacoma. During New Employee Orientation, a benefit specialist will be on hand to answer questions about eligibility and benefit plans, and to guide you through the process of enrolling for your benefits and participating in our wellness program, if applicable.
Even before your first day, you can begin exploring your benefit options with this Employee Benefits Guide. This guide is an overview of the benefit plans designed to provide you general information about your benefit options along with details on the cost of those options and specific levels of coverage. Please take some time to review this information so that you select the coverage which best meets the needs for you and your family.
To help you better understand your benefit plan choices, the City of Tacoma has a series of benefit videos. Most of the videos are about five minutes in length and provide a good overview of how the benefit programs work and provide a comparison of the plan options that are available. You and your family are welcome to check out these short videos in preparation for making your plan choices.
