Schedule an appointment

We offer appointments for one-hour phone consultations and one-hour video consultations. You may schedule a consultation up to two weeks in advance, but no later than two business days before the appointment date.

You may also contact us any time from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday at 803.737.6800 or 888.260.9430. Calls are answered in the order in which they are received.

Phone consultations

By scheduling a phone consultation, you can avoid call wait times. During your appointment, a benefits counselor will call you at a number you provide. Your consultation will be tailored to address your needs. A phone consultation may be a good option if you are planning to retire in the near future and wish to receive a full counseling and planning session.

Video consultations

During your appointment, you will connect with a benefits counselor via a secure video chat. Your consultation will be tailored to address your needs. A video consultation may be a good option if you have questions related to PEBA-administered benefits that have not been resolved over the phone or through email.

How to schedule an appointment

To schedule a phone or video consultation, email visitus@peba.sc.gov and include the following information in your email:

  • Name;
  • Phone number;
  • Type of consultation you prefer; and
  • What you’d like to accomplish during your appointment.

A benefits counselor will contact you to schedule an appointment. Then, you will receive a confirmation email with more details about your appointment.
