SC Public Employee Benefit Authority
South Carolina Retirement Systems
Attention: SERVICE DEPARTMENT
P.O. Box 11960, Columbia, SC 29211-1960
I hereby irrevocably elect to become a special contributing member of the General Assembly Retirement System (GARS)
as granted under Sections 9-9-40 and 9-9-120 of the SC Code of Laws. I am aware that this written election must be
filed with the South Carolina Retirement Systems within six months from the cessation of my membership in the South
Carolina General Assembly.
I understand that, as a GARS special contributing member, the South Carolina Retirement Systems will invoice me
annually for payment of my GARS special contributing member contribution. Further, I understand that if, in any given
year, I fail to directly remit payment for my GARS special contributing member contribution by no later than June 30th
after my invoice is received, that such nonpayment will be considered an irrevocable election on my part to end my GARS
special contributing member status.
