Serving those who serve South Carolina


Post-retirement information

We hope you are enjoying your retirement and thank you for your service to the citizens of South Carolina. We have tried to include information here that will be useful to members who are receiving benefits from one or more of our primary defined benefit retirement plans.


Your monthly benefit payment

PEBA deposits your monthly benefit payment into your bank account on the last business day of each month. The taxable portion of your monthly benefit is subject to federal and state income taxes. PEBA mails an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form 1099-R to each annuitant recipient every year at the end of January. You may access your Form 1099-R at any time by logging in to PEBA’s secure, online Member Access website. For information on taxes, visit the websites of the Internal Revenue Service and the South Carolina Department of Revenue or the website for the tax agency in the state in which you reside.
