Uplift Oregon Program
The more you know, the better you can take care of yourself and your family.
Benefits Program Overview
You matter. So do your benefits. We are here to support you in making the most of them.
In the Uplift Your Benefits workshop, you will be introduced to the range of benefits available to you as a state employee so that you can make informed decisions for yourself and your family. This workshop is tailored for new employees to the State of Oregon. After taking the workshop, you will have a better understanding of your state benefits and will have resources to take the next steps.
- Health insurance options
- Types of employee leave
- Public Service Loan Forgiveness program
- Other optional insurance
- Employee Assistance Program
- Flexible Spending Accounts
- Roles of Unions
In the last portion of the session, you will go into a breakout session based on your position’s union membership status (if applicable) to learn more about the systems available to support you. We will provide tools and resources to help you use your benefits with confidence.
All state employees can attend this session on work time. Please refer to your collective bargaining agreement or supervisor with questions. The Uplift Your Benefits training will be required for new hires in positions represented by AFSCME and SEIU. When possible, employees will sign up for their health insurance after going through the training.

“The Uplift Oregon Benefits webinar was very well presented and the information was extremely useful. I wish I had known about this before I signed up for my benefits but I will have this information for open enrollment. It was helpful to have everything listed in one place and the links they provided allowed me to do more research for retirement planning.
I highly recommend everyone take this webinar whether you are new or have been with your employer for years, as it will help you make better informed decisions about the benefits available to you.”
