PEBA changes modes of communicationTweet
The South Carolina Public Employee Benefit Authority (PEBA), the agency that administers the state’s employee insurance programs and retirement systems, will be changing the way it reaches out to members as of Sept.1.
The primary means of communicating general information and updates to its membership will from that day forward be through the agency’s news feed and social media sites.
You may have received an email from PEBA’s Communications Department staff alerting you to the fact that they will sign you up for the agency’s news feed unless you reply to that email by 5 p.m., Friday, July 25, with the following text in the subject line of your reply: “DO NOT ADD ME TO PEBA’S NEWS FEED.” Otherwise, you will be signed up. If you did not receive the email alerting you of this change, send an email to Pamala Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org to add your email address to the list.
The agency’s news feed will provide you with the latest information and updates regarding your insurance and/or retirement benefits automatically. You will receive emails that provide an overview of the latest news and, in some cases, links to important details that are located on their websites.
Once PEBA staff has signed you up for the news feed, you will receive a confirmation email from Google’s Feedburner (http://feedburner.google.com). You will need to open this email and click on the link provided to activate your subscription. Once you have clicked on the activation link, the Feedburner window shown below will appear to confirm activation of your news feed subscription. PEBA will not collect or use any information from you through this news feed.
Along with the news feed, PEBA’s primary means of communicating information and updates about your insurance and/or retirement benefits will include the agency’s Facebook and Twitter pages. “Like” PEBA on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/SCPEBA) and “follow” PEBA on Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/scpeba).
