Providing Benefits to Oregon Homecare and Personal Support Workers.

Thanks to the hard work of SEIU 503 member leaders, tens of thousands of homecare and personal support workers have access to Dental, Vision, Employee Assistance Program, and Paid Time Off benefits through the Oregon Homecare Workers Benefit Trust. Many of these workers also qualify for assistance with the cost of monthly premiums and some out-of-pocket expenses relating to Trust-Approved Qualified Health Plans purchased through their state or federal health insurance marketplace.

How it Works

The Supplemental Trust provides eligible participants who have Trust-Approved Qualified Health Plans assistance with their out-of-pocket premium, co-pay, co-insurance and deductible costs. The Benefit Trust offers premium-free dental, vision and Employee Assistance Program benefits.

Important Update

Who is Eligible

You may be eligible if you work 40 hours of SEIU 503 homecare bargaining unit work each month for two months in a row. The 40 hours can be for multiple clients, and can come from both homecare and personal support work. After you have worked 40 or more hours per month for two consecutive months, you will then need to complete a one-month waiting period while the State reports your hours to the Trust. Trust staff must receive and verify your hours data before you will be covered, so make sure you turn in your vouchers on a regular basis.
