Retirement Revenue currently participates in the Public Employees Retirement System (PERS) and the Oregon Public Service Retirement Plan (OPSRP). Employees normally become eligible for membership the first of the month following completion of six full calendar months of service. Benefits include pension, disability, and death benefits. Employees’ share of the retirement contribution is 6 percent of salary, but Revenue currently pays that on behalf of employees. Should employees leave the retirement plan prior to retirement, they normally can withdraw that employee portion, but it may be subject to income tax and a 10 percent penalty.
Oregon Savings Growth Plan
This is a 457 deferred compensation plan that allows employees to save toward retirement by contributing a portion of their salary to the plan on a pretax basis. Contributions plus earnings grow on a tax-deferred basis until distributed. Employees may contribute as little as $25 per month or may contribute up to 25 percent of their monthly salary. Maximum annual contribution is $8500 or 25 percent of gross income, whichever is less. Employees choose from a number of investment options. Funds generally cannot be withdrawn until the employee retires or separates from state service.
U.S. Savings Bonds Available for purchase through payroll deduction.
Credit unions
Several are available to employees. Direct deposit of paychecks is usually available and/or savings or loan repayment deductions.
Employee Assistance Program (EAP)  Provides access to free, confidential professional counseling to help employees and their families deal with difficult personal issues such as marital or financial difficulties, parenting problems, stress at home or work, emotional or psychological issues, aging or ailing family members, or alcohol and drug abuse.
Employee training and development
Revenue is committed to investing in its employees' futures and careers through in-house and external workshops, seminars, and meetings.
