The Public Employees Benefit Board (PEBB) designs, contracts, and administers the benefits program for State of Oregon employees, their spouse/partner, and their dependents. The insurance benefits include medical, dental, life, accident, disability, and long-term care, as well as flexible spending accounts and commuter accounts. Employees have multiple options in choosing medical and dental insurance.
The Public Employees Retirement System (PERS) is the retirement system for most public service workers in Oregon, including state employees. PERS-covered employees hired after Aug. 28, 2003, are Oregon Public Service Retirement Plan (OPSRP) members, unless membership was previously established in PERS. OPSRP has two components: the Pension Program and the Individual Account Program.
The OPSRP Pension Program is funded by your employer and provides a lifetime pension. It is designed to provide approximately 45 percent of your final average salary at retirement, for a general service member with a 30-year career. Final average salary is generally the average of the highest three consecutive years (or less if you were employed for less than three years) or one-third of total salary in the last 36 months of employment.
The Oregon Savings Growth Plan is a savings plan available to all Oregon public employees.
