Employee Benefit Trust


Any city can enroll in any one (or more) of the AWC plans the first of any month. You must commit to a minimum of three years participation in the Trust. If enrollment is over 600 employees, medical claims experience is required. We encourage you to contact Trust staff well in advance of your anticipated enrollment date so we can assist you in a smooth transition.

To establish your coverage, submit your enrollment packet at least 6 weeks prior to your proposed effective date. This allows processing time and time for identification cards to generate.

Your enrollment packet should include the following:

  1. Letter of intent indicating which plans you'll be purchasing, and the effective date. (Large employers over 600 may limitedly customize medical plans, which will be uniquely rated.)
  2. Completed AWC employer master participation agreement.
  3. Employee list (names and social security numbers).
  4. AWC combined insurance enrollment form for each covered employee.

Additionally, if purchasing medical, Delta Dental, and/or vision insurance, a signed resolution and AWC Trust Health Care Program’s Interlocal Agreement must be submitted within 30 days of the start of your coverage.

If you have questions on enrolling, or questions regarding any Trust plan, contact Trust staff at 1-800-562-8981 or benefitinfo@awcnet.org.
