City of Williston Human Resources staff can assist you with benefits-related questions and serves as a liaison between employees and the various carriers that are under contract to provide benefits to the City. The benefits section will provide you access to summaries and details of the available benefits, as well as links to service centers and carriers.

Upon hire, you may elect benefits listed in this section within one (1) month of your hire date. You may also elect coverage for these benefits for you and your eligible dependents during the annual Open Enrollment period and through special enrollments as a result of a Qualifying Life Event.

Making Changes to Your Benefits
When you enroll in benefits, certain life events may impact your benefits or allow you to make changes mid-plan year.  You can make changes during the annual Open Enrollment period, typically offered each fall, with changes effective the following January 1. 

You may also change your benefits elections after Open Enrollment if you experience a Qualifying Life Event, which may include:

Divorce, Legal Separation or Annulment
Birth or Adoption of an Eligible Child
Change in your (or your spouse’s) work status that affects benefits eligibility (e.g., change from full-time to part-time employment status)
A change in your child’s benefits eligibility
A Qualified Medical Child Support Order


You must report your Qualifying Life Event to a Human Resources staff representative within 30 days of the event with the required documentation to support your claim. If you fail to report your Qualifying Life Event within the required timeframe, you must wait until the next annual Open Enrollment to change your benefits elections.

If your dependent does not meet the current eligibility rules during the specified period, and/or you do not provide the required documentation, your dependent(s) will not be added to your benefits plan.

The City of Williston is an affirmative-action, equal-opportunity employer
