The PEBA Website is the Perfect Source for Annual Enrollment Info

Some enhancements have been made to the Insurance Benefits website, http://www.peba.sc.gov/ to make annual enrollment easier for you.

One of the buttons on the bottom of the homepage has changed to Enrollment Info. This links to a general information page about annual enrollment. The page includes links to the Insurance Advantage (both editions), the annual enrollment video, MyBenefits and enrollment documentation information.

It is strongly encouraged for you to visit the Insurance Benefits website to learn more about annual enrollment and the changes they can make.

Dependent Certification

The Employee Insurance Program (EIP) is conducting an extensive audit of dependent eligibility.  EIP is the Division of the State Budget and Control Board that provides the insurance coverages for State Employee and their dependents.  Blue Cross/Blue Shield currently has the contract for the management of these benefits but EIP is the actual provider. If you see an envelope from the SC Budget and Control Board or EIP - Employee Insurance Program do not disregard.
