Welcome to Open Enrollment 2021

Benefits Open Enrollment for Employees of the City of Hazleton has started.

The City of Hazleton is committed to providing quality benefits for all employees and retirees. This is the time to enroll or make changes to your medical, dental, vision benefits and add, remove or increase voluntary life and voluntary disability insurance if you wish. You may also add or remove coverage for eligible dependents (spouse and dependent children up to age 26). This is the one time of year when you can make changes to your benefits without experiencing a Qualifying Life Event (marriage, divorce, birth/adoption of a child, etc.). The benefit selections you make during open enrollment become effective on January 1, 2021.

Benefits Open Enrollment Begins Nov. 16 and Ends Nov. 20th at noon

No enrollments or changes can be made after this date
unless you have a qualifying event.

To make changes or if you have questions please call Renee or Sharon at (570) 669-5050 prior to Noon on Friday, November 20th. Please identify yourself as a City of Hazleton employee.
