Insurance Benefits

Medical, Dental & Vision

Medical, dental and vision benefits are provided to full-time employees by the City at a minimal group rate. Employees may elect coverage for his or her dependents (i.e. child(ren) only, spouse only or family).


Two life insurance plans are provided to employees by the City, at no cost to the employee: one year's salary through the Texas Municipal Retirement System for full-time and most part-time employees, and a $10,000 Life and AD&D policy through the group health plan provider for full-time employees. Optional additional coverage is available to full-time employees for themselves, spouse, and/or children at a group rate with deductions from each paycheck.

Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)

This optional benefit is available to full-time employees. Employees can choose pre-tax contributions from each paycheck for out-of-pocket medical expenses and/or reimbursement for dependent care. Dependent care covers the cost of care for dependent children under the age 13 who qualify as tax dependents and anyone claimed as a tax dependent because of physical or mental inability to care for himself/herself.

Supplemental Insurance

This optional benefit is available to full-time employees. Available policies include: short term disability income, off-the-job accident, critical illness, life, and hospital plan.
