Snohomish County offers a wide range of benefits to regular employees that are employed for at least 20 hours per week as part of your total compensation package. Choose from various healthcare insurance programs, plan for your future with savings and retirement options, enjoy generous leave policies, and protect yourself and your family with life insurance. Please note - benefits may vary depending on your Collective Bargaining Agreement and/or provisions outlined in Snohomish County Code Chapter 3A.06 or Chapter 3.68.
New employees must enroll within 30 days from your date of hire. You may enroll your spouse or domestic partner, and biological, adopted, and step-children up to the age of 26. You must submit all benefit forms and documentation that demonstrates eligibility (i.e. marriage or birth certificate) to Human Resources. If you are adding a Domestic Partner, please contact Human Resources directly for assistance with enrollment.
For new employees/newly eligible employees, the date your coverage starts is determined by your date of hire. If you were hired between the 1st and the 15th of the month, your benefits begin on the first day of the month following your date of hire. If you were hired between the 16th and the 31st of the month, your benefits begin on the first day of the second month following your date of hire. If you are changing your benefits mid-year, review more information on Changing your Current Benefits (PDF).
