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.
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.
Navigating Your Benefits
Learning about retirement benefits is important for any employee. PEBA has created Navigating Your Benefits as a multimedia campaign to provide common-language explanations on benefits.
Secure, online account access
Member Access is the online resource that allows a member of a PEBA-administered retirement plan to view and update their personal information and conduct online transactions such as applying for service retirement annuity. Member Access is safe, secure and available anytime from anywhere with Internet access.
A step-by-step flyer on how to register for Member Access and how to print a member statement can be found here.
Retirement awareness educational series
PEBA offers a 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.
The fourth presentation in PEBA’s retirement awareness education series provides an overview of the investment tools and resources available through the South Carolina Deferred Compensation Program (SCDCP) and the State Optional Retirement Program (State ORP) investment providers. Many of these resources are available to all employees and are not limited to participants of SCDCP or State ORP.
Each fall, PEBA hosts regional seminars designed for employees who are within a few years of retirement eligibility. The regional seminars also include presentations from the Social Security Administration and the South Carolina Deferred Compensation Program. Employees can register online.
