Serving those who serve South Carolina

Turnkey toolkits

PEBA produces ready-made information that you can forward to your employees by email or post to your Intranet or print and distribute as needed to any employees at your worksite who may not have access to electronic communications.


Our turnkey toolkits include retirement awareness materials you can share with your employees to help make them aware of the importance of taking action now to plan and save for a secure financial future.


New employees

We have a new employee-focused web page that helps guide a new employee through the process of selecting a retirement plan, if applicable, and includes checklists and resources to help your new employee navigate his retirement benefits.


Retirement awareness educational series

PEBA launched a new retirement awareness educational series as part of its efforts to provide members with information that can help them make smart decisions about their financial future. These presentations build upon information in the previous presentations, so we recommend members view them in sequential order to get the most benefit from the information provided.


"Planning for Your Future, Part One: Creating a Budget"

This is the first presentation in our new series of retirement awareness information and education. In this presentation, you can learn how to create a budget and why it is a good idea to do so.



"Planning for Your Future, Part Two: Setting Financial Goals and Building a Financial Safety Net"

This is the second presentation in our retirement awareness education series. In this presentation, you can learn strategies for setting financial goals and methods for building a financial safety net and hear about the reasons why it is important to begin thinking about and planning for a secure financial future.



"Planning for Your Future, Part Three: Saving for Your Future"

This third presentation in PEBA’s retirement awareness education series provides an overview of the retirement benefits PEBA administers, takes a look at a number of available savings options and explains how simple and compound interest work. A savings program is an essential component to ensuring a secure financial future.



Retirement seminar

If you are within a few years of retirement eligibility, this seminar is designed for you. It provides an overview of the benefits you can expect to receive from your PEBA-administered retirement plan and goes over a few things you need to consider as you approach retirement eligibility.



Coming in early 2016: Early- and mid-career employees seminar

When you are a long way from being eligible to retire, it is difficult to understand the importance of taking action to save and invest so you can have a secure financial future. On average, PEBA’s retirement plans provide about 50 percent of your active employment income. At best, Social Security may provide up to 40 percent. While this may seem sufficient at first glance, there are a lot of other variables to consider and this presentation will explain what those are and how you can take action now to help ensure you have a secure financial future. PEBA is developing information that will help guide you through the planning process so you can get started now toward securing your financial future.


Retirement benefits videos

PEBA’s YouTube channel features a variety of videos designed to provide you with overviews of your retirement benefits and to highlight topics of which you might otherwise be unaware.
