Responsibilities and Duties
Employee Benefits oversees the administration of all medical, dental, life, disability as well as voluntary benefits programs for Shelby County Government.
Currently it is responsible for three health plans CIGNA HMO, CIGNA CHOICE HRA and CIGNA STANDARD HRA serving approximately 9,000 active employees, retirees and municipalities employees. For most employees, these benefits are valued as much as 40% of their base salary.
A number of benefits and benefit options are offered to employees through Shelby County's Flexible Benefit Plan, which allows the employee contribution to be paid with pre-tax earnings. Under this program, changes in benefit plans may be made only once a year during an annual open enrollment period, unless there is a change in family status as specified in the Plan's guidelines. Efforts to maintain quality benefits at reasonable costs are ongoing and will continue to be a primary concern of Shelby County Government.
Mission Statement: Employee Benefits is committed to providing competitive benefits and quality service.
Vision Statement: To become the premier employee benefits department providing competitive benefits utilizing innovative resources to make our customers better consumers of related benefits services.
