What You’ll Pay

Contributions are 1% of your gross wages up to the Social Security wage base, which is $168,600 for 2024. Your employer will pay at least 40% of your monthly premium. Any remaining portion not covered by your employer will be deducted from your paycheck.

Benefit Amount

Benefits will depend on your earnings compared to Oregon’s Average Weekly Wage. 


Here is an example based on annual earnings.

Employee A $500.00 $500.00 $26,000.00
Employee B $912.65 $1,000.00 $52,000.00
