Have you ever worked for an employer that participates in a defined benefit retirement plan administered by the South Carolina Public Employee Benefit Authority (PEBA)? As a member of one of the defined benefit retirement plans, you would have made employee contributions into your retirement account. Did you terminate employment more than one year ago and leave your money in your retirement account? PEBA considers your defined benefit plan retirement account to be inactive when no contributions have been made to the account in the preceeding 12 months and no other active, correlated defined benefit plan or State Optional Retirement Program account exists.

If you think you contributed a PEBA-administered retirement account and terminated employment more than one year ago, enter your Social Security number below (with no spaces or dashes) to see if we have your money. If you worked for the state of South Carolina prior to 1975, your account may be listed under an Active Register Number (ARN). Enter the ARN as you would a Social Security number (with no spaces or dashes) and click Submit.


Please note that if you are working for two or more covered employers and/or contributing to more than one retirement account [i.e., working two jobs and paying into a South Carolina Retirement System (SCRS) and a Police Officers Retirement System (PORS) account], you must stop working in all correlated retirement plans to request a refund from any account.

If you worked for the state of South Carolina before 1975 and do not know your ARN, you may also search by name and date of birth.
