  • Your local employer contributes an amount equal to 5% of your salary, pre-tax, into your State ORP account.
  • You own 100% of both your contributions and the employer matching contribution immediately.
  • You can choose your own investments, or choose professional management.
  • You can take both accounts with you wherever you live next year, or 30 years from now.
  • You can enroll online by yourself or contact us to help you.

While our state office is located in Columbia, our financial professionals live throughout South Carolina.
