    The best thing about working for the State of Colorado is being covered by PERA for retirement. However, for new hires the benefits are not as good compared to someone who has been there for at least 10 years. They've had to cut back because of funding constraints. Health insurance coverage is good. The RTD bus pass is helpful but it should be low priced than it is. The worst part about working for the State especially in downtown Denver is having to pay for Parking which is at least $200.00 a month. If you can take the light rail, you have it made!

    Best benefit is the retirement plan.

    There aren't many plans to pick from and they all have $1500 deductibles for single coverage.

    PERA retirement plan is great, health insurance plans are great (discounts available through a wellness program and free HSA contributions from the state if you are in a high-deductible health plan), everyone gets decent life insurance and short term disability. Optional long term disability and extra health insurance available. Most agencies seem good with flex-schedules and working from home. Subsidized ECOpass to ride RTD in the state. Lots of discounts available through benefithub for phones, electronics, etc. (kind of like groupon for state employees).

    The health plans are changing every year to try and get the best package. That is both good and bad. Retirement package is exceptional. Dental is very good.

    Used to be a LOT better benefits but with all the cutbacks in the retirement and healthcare provided it isn't the best package anymore. Considering the pay is typically AT LEAST 10-20% below industry, its hard to swallow a benefits package that doesn't help bridge that gap.

    The state uses PERA for it's retirement plan and is considered a good plan.

    The 401k type plan was not a fully funded plan so it isn't a guarantee that what you put in and what is matched will be available.

    Pretty generous vacation and sick time, inclusive of all federal holidays. Good insurance choices - right now United or Kaiser - though employee share has gone up, effectively eating COLA on salaries. Good ancillary benefits like credit union, free counseling services, health incentives, service discounts.
