Benefits for City of Columbus Full Time Employees

The City of Columbus offers full time (30+ hours per week) employees a variety of benefit options such as paid holidays, health care benefits, voluntary life & ADD insurance, short & long term disability.

The City offers two SIHO-administered health benefits plans for our employees and their eligible dependents, as well as preventive health care coverage, and an extensive network of in-network providers

One option is a Preferred Provider Plan (PPO), and the second option is a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) which offers a Health Savings Account (HSA).

The Health Summary Plan Description (SPD) for Medical and Prescription Drug Benefits booklet describes your medical and prescription drug benefits and serves as the Summary Plan Description (SPD) and Plan document for the City of Columbus Employee Benefit Plan (“the Plan”). It sets forth the provisions of the Plan that provide for payment or reimbursement of Plan benefits. You can find it at City of Columbus SPD.

VOLUNTARY LIFE INSURANCE

Enrollment information for NON-SWORN employees here.  If you elect voluntary life insurance, OneAmerica is including Accidental Death & Dismemberment at no additional cost for the same benefit amount as your life insurance.

Enrollment information for SWORN employees here. If you elect voluntary life insurance, OneAmerica is including Accidental Death & Dismemberment at no additional cost for the same benefit amount as your life insurance.

Why are they different?  Sworn employees do not receive Short Term or Long Term disability and Non-Sworn do!

The City currently provides short term and long term disability to Non-Sworn employees.  OneAmerica is now the provider for the long term disability. The Non-Sworn application will provide information about that benefit.

Do you need to change or update your beneficiary information? Here is the form for that!
