Open Enrollment & Voluntary Benefits

by Lauren Taylor, Acting Benefits Division Manager, Department of Human Resources

The open enrollment period for Henrico County’s core benefits (health, dental, STIP, flexible spending accounts) and voluntary benefits is coming soon! For benefit-eligible employees, Open Enrollment will be from October 1 to October 27, 2023, with coverage effective January 1, 2024.


We are excited to introduce TWO additional voluntary benefit offerings through our third-party administrator, Pierce Insurance Agency… Vision and Pet Insurance!


The Henrico County Employee Benefits Committee, in partnership with Pierce Insurance Agency, continually monitors your total benefits package to ensure access to the most cost-effective options available. Current voluntary benefit plans include Accident, Critical Illness, Hospital Indemnity, Cancer, Identity Theft Protection, Legal Plan, and Life Insurance with Long Term Care. New for the 2024 plan year is the addition of Vision and Pet Insurance!


The supplemental plans provide financial protection with benefits paid directly to you regardless of any other insurance you may have.


You are encouraged to attend a voluntary benefits information session with Pierce Insurance Agency. During Open Enrollment, employees can schedule an appointment to meet one-on-one with a Pierce Insurance Agency benefits counselor to review the voluntary benefit plans and assist with enrollment. In late September, more information will be announced regarding registration and sign-up for individual meetings.
