Employee Benefits represents a very important component of the total compensation package offered by Ada County.

Ada County offers a very generous, competitive, and comprehensive benefit package designed to provide regular full-time and part-time employees and their families with a wide range of benefit options. The three fundamental roles that characterize benefits (protection programs, paid time-off programs, and enhancement programs) are represented in the benefit package offered by the County.

The Employee Benefits division is focused on meeting the needs of Ada County employees by providing excellent customer service, maintaining a benefit program of high value, and increasing the value of the total compensation package.
