    The Public Employee Benefits Cooperative of North Texas (PEBC) was created in 1998. On behalf of its member governments, the PEBC provides joint purchase of employee benefits and cost effective administration of PEBC programs. The Employers that are members of the PEBC share the belief that a quality employee benefits program is necessary to recruit and retain a quality workforce. Current PEBC member entities include Dallas County, Tarrant County, the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA), Denton County, and Parker County.

    The PEBC has been successful in reducing plan costs and improving benefit and service levels for its members by standardizing a number of processes. The organization has created a common plan design for all medical and dental benefits, to which all PEBC members must subscribe. In addition, the PEBC provides centralized administration and eligibility processing. These features not only simplify the benefits administration process for member entities, but also serve as attractive features for the organization’s external vendors.The PEBC has a dedicated staff led by an Executive Director.
