Not only is FPHSA a great place to work, but there are tremendous benefits of being a Louisiana State Government employee. Please see some of the benefits below:
Benefits – Louisiana State Government represents a wide variety of career options and offers an outstanding opportunity to “make a difference” through public service. With an array of career opportunities in every major metropolitan center and in many rural areas, state employment provides an outstanding option to begin or continue your career. As a state employee, you will earn competitive pay, choose from a variety of benefits and have access to a great professional development program.
Professional Development – The Comprehensive Public Training Program (CPTP) is the state-funded training program for state employees. Through CPTP, agencies are offered management development and supervisory training, and general application classes on topics as diverse as writing skills and computer software usage.
Insurance Coverage – Employees can choose one of several health insurance programs ranging from an HMO to the State’s own Group Benefits Insurance program. The State of Louisiana pays a portion of the cost for group health and life insurance. Dental and vision coverage are also available. More information can be found at www.groupbenefits.org.
Deferred Compensation – As a supplemental retirement savings plan for employees, the State offers a Deferred Compensation Plan for tax deferred savings.
Holidays and Leave – State employees receive the following paid holidays each year: New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Mardi Gras, Good Friday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. Additional holidays may be proclaimed by the Governor. State employees earn sick and annual leave which can be accumulated and saved for future use. Your accrual rate increases as your years of service increase.
Retirement – The Louisiana State Employees Retirement System (LASERS) is a qualified defined benefit pension and retirement plan under Section 401 (a) of the Internal Revenue Code. LASERS provides retirement allowances and other benefits for state officers and employees and their beneficiaries. Additional information on this program can be found at www.lasersonline.org.
Malpractice Insurance–In addition to the available personal benefits listed above, malpractice insurance is also provided through the Office of Risk Management.
HRSA Site– As a state agency, employees of FPHSA may be eligible to apply for different student loan assistance programs, including the Federal Public Service Loan Forgiveness program. Additionally, some of the FPHSA facilities within our region are HRSA approved, meaning that some staff assigned to those sites may be eligible for HRSA Student Loan Repayment programs depending on their discipline/licensure status.
