The Office of Employee Benefits administers and communicates the City's health and welfare benefits plan for all benefit-eligible active employees, retirees, and their dependents. The Office 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 benefits package for regular (benefit-eligible) employees working at least thirty (30) hours per week.
