The City of Sheridan offers a comprehensive employee benefits program through Cigna, Delta Dental, Mutual of Omaha, VSP and Aflac, effective January 1, 2019. Employees working 30 hours per week are eligible to participate if enrolled within 31 days of first becoming eligible. For new hires, employees become eligible on the first of the month following their date of hire.
The City offers health benefits to employees and eligible dependents through an IRS Cafeteria Plan, Code Section 125. By maintaining a cafeteria plan, the City offers health benefits to employees on a pre-tax basis; that is, required contributions are deducted from your gross pay prior to calculation of taxes, unless you request in writing that contributions be taken on a post-tax basis.
