  Salary & Benefits  

Employee/Employer Pay Contribution Plan:

The employee and employer share equally in the contribution to PERS, currently 14.5% each for regular members. Your contributions are subject to withholding for federal income taxes. Your share of the contribution is refundable upon termination. A refund of member contributions cancels membership in the system and any and all rights to a monthly benefit earned.

Employer Pay Contribution Plan:

Employees may voluntarily choose to participate under the EPC plan. If you elect this plan, you pay your portion of the contribution by way of a salary reduction equal to approximately ½ of the contribution rate on a pre-tax basis. Your employer then pays the contribution to PERS, 28.00% for regular members.

Health Saving Account and Flexible Spending Account available depending on chosen Health Care Plan.

The State provides 11 paid holidays: New Year's Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Presidents' Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Nevada Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, Family Day & Christmas
