Welcome to the City of Mesa!
The City offers a host of health and welfare benefits from medical, dental and vision coverage, to flexible spending accounts and income protection plans such as short-term disability and life insurance. The New Hire Benefits Guide will provide you with an overview of the benefits available with plan highlights, eligibility, instructions on how to enroll and monthly costs.
Be prepared to make your benefit elections
|The following is a checklist to help you keep track of what you will need to do prior to your New Employee Orientation (NEO) meeting:
Enroll using eBenMesa
- During your NEO meeting, you will be provided with detailed information about how to enroll using eBenMesa, our online enrollment tool; you will also be asked to update your contact information via an online ESS application.
- Be prepared to make your beneficiary designations via eBenMesa during your NEO meeting (can also be updated throughout the year). Note that Arizona is a community property state, so if you are designating any portion of the employee Basic or Supplemental life insurance to someone other than an applicable spouse as primary beneficiary, you must have your spouse complete a Spouse Waiver and Release Form (this does not apply to committed partnerships). Life insurance for a spouse and/or dependent children are automatically designated to the employee as primary beneficiary and cannot be changed.
