The goal of the City of Salisbury is to offer a comprehensive benefits package that will meet the needs of our employees and their families. This following is a benefits summary that provides an overview of the available benefits for City of Salisbury employees and their families. For further details, click on the button below.

Employee Benefits Guide



The City of Salisbury is pleased to offer you a choice of two medical benefit plans. The plans are both Preferred Provider Organization plans (PPO). The plans are PPO Base and PPO Buy-up. The PPO Base plan has a less rich benefit design than the PPO Buy-up plan, and it has a lower corresponding payroll deduction amount.


The City’s dental benefits allow you to choose a participating dentist in the BCBSNC network. If you choose to use a non-participating dentist, BCSBNC will pay you, the employee, directly. You may have to pay your dentist up front and wait on your reimbursement from BCBSNC. Your dental coverage is tied to your medical election.

Life Insurance

The City of Salisbury provides, at no charge to the employee, a life insurance policy in the amount of the employee's annual salary rounded up to the nearest thousand (not to exceed $200,000). Additional life insurance is available for the employee and family members through payroll deduction.


The City of Salisbury offers the following paid holidays:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
  • Good Friday
  • Memorial Day
  • Juneteenth
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Veteran’s Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Day after Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas (3 days)



Annual leave provides you time for vacationing, rest, relaxation or to conduct personal affairs. Full pay, benefits, and the accrual of leave time continue during annual leave. For each calendar month you are employed full time, you accrue Annual Leave time according to your length of service. Fire and Police are not eligible for holiday pay, and therefore accrue annual leave at a higher rate.


Sick leave is to be used for employee illness or disability or that of a member of the immediate family or a parent, child or spouse living outside the household who requires the employee’s personal care or attention.


Employees are entitled up to three (3) consecutive days off with pay for the funeral of an immediate family relative: (mother, father, guardian, sister, brother, spouse, domestic partner, child, aunt, uncle, nephew, niece, mother-in-law, father-in-law, grandparent, or grandchild, plus combinations of half, step, in-law, and adopted relationships that can be derived from those named.

Employees are entitled to one (1) day for the death of a relative other than an immediate family member.

Employees are entitled to four (4) hours to attend the funeral of a co-worker.

Full-time employees and employees who work 1000 hours or more per year automatically become a member of the North Carolina Local Government Retirement System. Employers and employee required contributions are mandated by state legislature. The employee’s share of the cost is 6% and is automatically deducted from the employee’s paycheck. Employees are vested with five years of creditable service.


As a part of the total compensation package, employees who work over 20 hours per week on a regular basis will receive an employer contribution of 5% of their annual salary to the NC401(k) Plan. An employee can elect to contribute up to 100% of compensation or $19,500 annually to the plan (whichever is lower). By participating in the NC401(k) Plan, an employee has the opportunity to build savings while reducing today's taxes.

An employee’s contributions to the Plan are deducted directly from his/her paycheck before taxes are calculated. This means the employees current taxable income is reduced and the amount of taxes he/she pays on his/her income is also reduced. Prudential Financial 401(k) services is the plan administrator. Employees can call the 401(k) Action Line toll-free (866) NC401K1 or visit the web site at


The Deferred Compensation Program also known by the Internal Revenue Code, 457, is a tax-deferred program designed to help you save for retirement through payroll deduction. Under IRS guidelines, an employee may defer up to 100% or $18,500 annually to the 457 plan (whichever is lower). Employees are permitted to participate in both the 401-K Plan and the 457 plan. Each plan has an annual limit non-inclusive of the counter plan.
