Employee Benefits

The Benefits Division administers benefits for active and retired employees and dependents that meet qualifications. The City is committed to providing affordable benefits that assist employees in being healthy.  And when it comes to employees' health, we empower employees with a comprehensive set of benefits designed to protect their physical and emotional health. 

Texas Municipal Retirement System (TMRS)
The City provides membership to all eligible employees for the Texas Municipal Retirement System. Employee contributes 7% of gross income (pre-tax); the City matches the contribution at a rate of 2:1. The employee becomes vested with the City of Edinburg after ten years of service.

Employees become eligible for retirement at 20 years of service. Employees with public service at another entity may apply for service credit toward total years of service. Upon retirement, TMRS provides monthly income for retirees that will include the City's contribution match. 

Vacation Leave
Regular full-time civil and non-civil service employees accrue vacation leave on a bi-weekly basis. An employee may not use any accrued vacation leave until he/she has successfully completed his/her initial employments probationary period. 

Sick Leave
All regular full-time employees begin accruing paid sick leave during their first full month of employment. Regular full-time employees who are in their initial probationary status may use accrued sick leave only if approved by their Supervisor and/or Department Director.

The City of Edinburg provides paid holiday to regular full-time employees (whether on probation or not). Every other employee is extended the official holiday, but without pay.  The City Council designates holidays for the City employees.
