Employee benefits

Hennepin County embraces the Total Rewards philosophy.

This means offering our employees advantages and opportunities not found at most places. These include meaningful work, competitive pay, work-life balance, generous benefits, opportunities to grow, and a commitment to your success.

COVID-19 update

The Benefits Division is working remotely until further notice in accordance with the county’s action to mitigate COVID-19.

All benefits-related forms (Family status change forms (FSCs), dependent documentation, Parking FSA change forms, etc.) should be submitted via email to HR.Benefits@hennepin.us rather than sending in through interoffice mail / US mail.
