Division of Human Resources


Some of us work to live, while others live to work. But when the work is over, we can provide ourselves with financial security and peace of mind by choosing the right retirement plan and making essential investments in our future health and happiness.

The University of South Carolina partners with the South Carolina Public Employee Benefits Authority (PEBA) to provide comprehensive retirement plan options that are designed with a variety of choices so that you can determine what level of coverage best suits your needs.

We offer a traditional state defined benefit plan and defined contribution plan as well as other tax-sheltered annuity products such as 457(b), 401(k) and 403(b) plans.
