2023 Benefits Open Enrollment for Bayfield County Employees

This page is dedicated to Bayfield County employees.  Bayfield County offers a wide variety of benefits to employees.  The open enrollment period offers employees the opportunity to enroll in, cancel or change their insurance coverages for the coming year.  Below, Bayfield county employees may find all the resources they'll need to enroll in the variety of benefits offered.

Many of the County's personnel forms are available in a fillable format.  A signature is required.  The forms must be printed and signed before submitting to the County Clerk's Office.  Please contact the Human Resources Office at 715-373-3201 or email with any questions you may have.  ALL forms are due FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2022 to the County Clerk's Office.

Employee Benefit Review meetings will be held virtually.  Spouses are welcome to participate. There are four options to participate in the meetings:

1) Join us in person in the EOC.

2) Click on the "Join Microsoft Teams Meeting" link to join the meeting through a computer device. 

3) Download the Microsoft Teams App to your smartphone and connect through the App.

4) Participate by telephone. This option is least preferred because you will not be able to view the slide presentation.

Links to the meetings are included in the 2023 Benefits Open Enrollment Overview memo.

Open Enrollment Meetings will take place on Monday, October 3 at 1:30pm and Wednesday, October 12 at 1:30pm.
