Employee Benefits


May is Mental Health Awareness Month!

The City of Long Beach is committed to providing you with comprehensive benefits that meet your needs, no matter where you are in life, even if your life is currently a "balancing act."

During these extraordinary times, many of us are spending more time with our families. And while family time can be a source of support, comfort and strength, it can also be a source of stress. After all, everyone struggles to find enough time to balance work and family obligations. It’s especially challenging for those who are also raising children or caring for disabled or elderly relatives. Check out these tips that can help you deal with family dynamics.

In honor of Mental Health Awareness month, Gympass will host several virtual fitness events designed to kick your fitness level up a notch and remind you and yours to exercise self-care!

Life Insurance and CalPERS Beneficiary Reminders!

Voluntary Life Insurance Coverage

Update Your Beneficiaries - CalPERS, ICMA-RC and The Standard
During Open Enrollment, please give some thought to updating your beneficiaries. Please note the following information:

Please note: paper beneficiary forms are no longer stored by the City's Central Payroll department, so it is very important that the above entities have your current beneficiary information. If you have questions, please contact your department PPA.
