Benefits

Benefit Overview

The City of Greenville offers a comprehensive benefits package designed to provide a variety of choices to best fit the needs of our employees and their families. All coverages are effective the first of the month following the employee’s hire date except for long term disability which is effective the 91st day following date of hire.   

An employee's deductions for medical and dental premiums, flexible spending accounts, deferred compensation, and the City's retirement plans are all taken on a pre-tax basis. This means that before federal, state, and social security taxes are calculated and deducted from an employee's pay, these deductions are used/taken to reduce gross pay and thereby reduce taxes.
