The South Carolina Public Employee Benefit Authority (PEBA) is committed to protecting the privacy of users of our website as well as the privacy of our members and subscribers.
Website users do not have to identify themselves to access information about the programs that PEBA offers; however, PEBA encourages individuals who participate in one or more of the benefits we administer to provide their email address, home address, and/or telephone number through our secure, online account access websites so PEBA can provide you with the latest news and updates about your benefits. Please be assured that PEBA will use your contact information only to support your relationship with our agency and the programs we administer and services we provide. PEBA will not provide your personal information to third parties for solicitation purposes.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) ensures security and privacy of health information by setting standards for access and distribution of that information. The South Carolina Public Employee Benefit Authority’s (PEBA’s) Notice of Privacy Practices, located at the first link below, outlines the various situations in which PEBA uses and discloses health information. It also outlines the member’s rights with regard to the information and disclosure.
If you have any questions, please contact PEBA’s Privacy Officer at 803.737.6800 or 888.260.9430.
