Uplift Your Benefits
You matter. So do your benefits.
As a state employee, your salary is just part of your total compensation. The incredible benefits available to you can add tens of thousands of dollars a year to your budget! Uplift Your Benefits is a two-hour workshop to help new state employees like you make the most of your benefits. The workshop is for new state employees and should be taken on paid work time. During the training you will learn about:
- Your health insurance through the Public Employees’ Benefits Board (PEBB)
- Your retirement plan
- Public service loan forgiveness
- Free counseling, plus financial and legal support through the Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
- Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) to help you save on healthcare and childcare

From an Uplift Your Benefits training attendee on November 18, 2021 on the most useful part of Uplift Oregon’s benefits workshop:
“It was so valuable to be able to ask questions and receive thoughtful responses, especially having all the links so I can sit down at home with my family to ensure we review the [benefits] information and pick what’s actually best for us together.”
