Serving those who serve South Carolina


An eligible spouse

  • Is a spouse, as defined by South Carolina law
  • A former spouse who is required to be covered by a divorce decree.


You may cover your current spouse or your former spouse, but you cannot cover both spouses under any PEBA insurance program.


A spouse eligible for coverage as an employee of any participating group, including a local subdivision, or as a state-funded retiree, may not be covered as a spouse under any plan. A spouse who is a permanent, part-time teacher may be covered as an employee or as a spouse, but not as both. A spouse who is a non-funded retiree may be covered as a retiree or as a spouse, but not as both.
