2017 SECA CAMPAIGN - "Inspire and Be Inspired"

The 2017 State Employees Charitable Appeal (SECA) campaign has officially kicked off!

"Inspire and Be Inspired" is this years theme!

The SECA Campaign is the perfect time to donate to your favorite charities using one pledge form. For a list of charities and company details, click here and go to page 14 of the SECA booklet.

SECA pledges are electronic!
Donations can be made through a secure, electronic management tool called e-Pledge. You can select how to donate either by payroll deduction, credit card, check or a billing option. If you still prefer the paper pledge form, contact our office and we can mail one to you.

Check your email for a campaign kickoff message from "".  This email will contain a unique self-registration link, where you will have the ability to make a contribution.  If you’ve made previous donations through the SECA campaign, you will have the ability to look up past donation history.  Please note that social security numbers and CCRI identification numbers are not used in this process.  The id number used for the campaign is the same employee number issued from the State of Rhode Island for your electronic paystubs.

The campaign will run from November 20th to December 8th.

Contact Melissa Murphy in Human Resources at x2311 if you have any questions.


No matter where you are in life - just getting started or planning for retirement - a session with a financial consultant can help you create a unique plan for your goals. And, it's at no additional cost as a part of your retirement plan. You’ll get answers to these questions and more:

  • Am I invested in the right mix of investments to help meet my goals?
  • Am I saving enough to create the retirement income I need?
  • How do I take income from my retirement account once I stop working?
  • How do I plan for short-term goals such as saving for a house or education expenses?
  • How do I manage debt, save money and balance various financial priorities at the same time?

Register for a session to get an action plan created especially for you.  Register at or call 800-732-8353 weekdays, 8am to 8pm (ET).
