The Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners (BCC) offers key core benefits designed around the needs of our eligible employees, their spouses, domestic partners, and dependents, such as vacation, health insurance, and retirement options. But there's much more...

Options for payment of unused vacation and sick time are available for those who meet criteria
