Life-Changing Events for Employees

Pierce County Employee Changes



When an employee has experienced changes to family size, home location, phone number, name or just wants to change the beneficiary for one of their benefit plans, they can perform many of these functions through the Pierce County's employee self service.

Outside new employee eligibility enrollments and open enrollment, qualifying events that happen throughout the year allow employees the opportunity to adjust their benefits accordingly.

Making Changes



Employees must have access to the mypiercecounty intranet and their Workday account.
