Very Important: Regardless of which enrollment method you choose, you must return the Retirement Plan Enrollment (Form 1100) directly to your employer within 30 days of employment or you will automatically default into the South Carolina Retirement System. Form 1100 notifies the South Carolina Public Employee Benefit Authority that you have chosen the State ORP and selected VALIC as your retirement plan provider. 

For personal investment counseling and face-to-face assistance, simply call your local VALIC financial advisor. Your local financial advisor will assist you with all of the necessary forms and deliver all enrollment forms to your payroll office.
