Oakland Unified School District


"Retirement" isn't just an employment status, it's a GOAL - to be able to stop working and focus on what we want to, with our income and healthcare sufficient for our needs and secure.

  • Securing your Income: As an OUSD employee, you are participating in a PENSION PLAN that helps you save toward retirement. This plan should be part of a larger savings strategy and OUSD offers the opportunity for you to set up additional savings plans through your PENSION PLAN administrator.

  • Planning for your Healthcare costs - As an OUSD employee, your health benefits have been subsidized; as a retiree, while you are still able to participate in the district's group plans, your coverage plan, and costs will change. Medicare may become part of the equation. As you approach retirement, we can help you ensure you have completed all the necessary tasks so there are no surprises or interruptions in your coverage.
