Employee Benefits

Pierce County provides comprehensive benefits and services to eligible employees, retirees, and their dependents through strategic planning, negotiation, and implementation of benefit programs. Benefits is here to help you with your medical, vision, and dental plan options; life and disability insurance; medical and dependent care reimbursement accounts; and retirement planning.

PEBB Limited Open Enrollment (LOE) is July 1 - 31. 

The PEBB Program knows the COVID-19 pandemic may have changed your health care needs. That’s why they are offering you a limited open enrollment to make some changes to your PEBB benefits. (Normally, you would need to have a life event, like a birth or marriage, to make these changes midyear.)

From July 1 through July 31, you can make the changes below.

  • Add an eligible dependent to your PEBB medical coverage. You must submit documents that prove your dependent’s eligibility.
  • Enroll in medical coverage if you are currently enrolled only in dental coverage (including medical-only subscribers who previously waived).

During the LOE, PEBB employees can make changes to some of their PEBB benefits by submitting paper forms to Pierce County’s benefits office. These forms will be posted online on July 1 and must be submitted no later than July 31. Changes are effective August 1, 2020. 

To get the forms to make these changes, visit the PEBB Program’s limited open enrollment webpage.
