Snohomish County pays a major portion of the monthly insurance premium for employees working 35+ hours per week. Employees working less than 35 hours per week will be offered benefits with pro-rated premiums.
The benefit start date is based on your date of hire. If you are hired between the 1st and 15th of the month, your benefits start the 1st of the next month. If you are hired between the 16th and the end of the month, your benefits start the 1st of the month following the next month.
Example: If you are hired June 15, your benefits would start July 1. If you are hired June 16, your benefits would start August 1.
If you choose to decline medical coverage for you and your dependents, complete the Waiver of Health Care Coverage form.
