Employee Benefits


The Office of Employee Benefits administers and communicates the City's Health and Welfare benefits plans for all active employees, retirees and their dependents.  The Division serves as a liaison between members and the various carriers who are under contract to provide benefits to the City.

The City of Baltimore offers a comprehensive benefit package for regular(benefit-eligible) employees working at least 30 hours per week.  Enrollment into the City of Baltimore's group medical, prescription, drug, dental, vision, optional life and AD&D and Health Care FSA and Dependent Care FSA plans must be completed online within 45 days of employment, during the 2-week Annual Open Enrollment Period, and within 60 days of a Qualifying event.  Temporary, seasonal and contractual employees working 30 hours or more per week over a 12-month Initial Measurement Period are offered medical and prescription drug coverage only at the end of the initial measurement period.  Failure to enroll online within these timeframes will forfeit benefit eligibility until the next open enrollment period.
