County Secretary Benefit Programs
***Note: In order to have computer network access, county support staff must have a courtesy appointment with the University of Missouri.
The county secretary benefit program is the result of several year's effort by individuals, county councils, county commissions, the state extension council, the University of Missouri and the Missouri General Assembly.
Health care and retirement benefits are available to to benefit eligible county secretaries. Benefit eligible county office secretaries are regularly scheduled to work at least ¾ time (.75 or greater FTE, which is 30 or more hours per week). Not all county extension councils participate in the health or retirement benefits.
For administration questions contact the county secretary benefits plan administrator, Tamra Robbins, at firstname.lastname@example.org, 573-882-7755 (phone) or 573-882-2595 (fax).
The committee oversees the benefits program. If you have questions, comments or concerns about this benefits program, contact the committee.
To assist in the expenditure and to encourage county extension councils (councils) in offering health benefits, the University of Missouri Extension will provide an extension health subsidy (subsidy) to participating councils.
The retirement plan has been designed to be a portion of an individual’s long-term financial plan and encourages secretaries to plan extended careers with extension.
County extension secretaries are covered under the University of Missouri Workers' Compensation program.
