RSA aims to provide for its members and employees, as well as to the general public, a website that is available to the broadest possible audience. To that end, RSA is committed to ensuring access to RSA’s websites regardless of an individual’s physical or developmental abilities.
RSA uses the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) as its goal for accessible RSA and PEEHIP websites on the www.rsa-al.gov domain. These guidelines establish standards of accessibility for information in a web page or web application, including information such as text, images and sounds, as well as code or markup that defines architecture and presentation of web and online content.
RSA’s Communications Division is responsible for the procurement, development, and/or maintenance of the RSA and PEEHIP websites. The Communications Division is responsible for using its best efforts to ensure that each piece of web content created, edited, or maintained on an RSA or PEEHIP website complies with this policy. The Communications Division must promptly report web accessibility complaints regarding content to the RSA Legal Division, and the two divisions will collectively work to address any complaints to the best of their abilities.
RSA has designated Deborah Kirk, Assistant Director of Communications, as Accessibility Coordinator. To contact the Accessibility Coordinator in order to find out more information about RSA’s Accessibility Guidelines or to make RSA aware of an issue with website accessibility, please call 334-517-7190 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

Notice of Non-Discrimination and Language Access Services
Discrimination is Against the Law
The Public Education Employees’ Health Insurance Plan (PEEHIP) complies with applicable Federal civil rights laws and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, or sex. PEEHIP does not exclude people or treat them differently because of race, color, national origin, age, disability, or sex.
- Provides free aids and services to people with disabilities to communicate effectively with us, such as qualified sign language interpreters and written information in other formats (large print, audio, accessible electronic formats, or other formats); and
- Provides free language services to people whose primary language is not English, such as qualified interpreters and information written in other languages.
If you need these services, contact our 1557 Compliance Coordinator, at 1-877-517-0020. If you believe that PEEHIP has failed to provide these services or discriminated in another way on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, or sex, you can file a grievance with: Public Education Employees’ Health Insurance Plan, 201 South Union Street, Montgomery, Alabama, 36104, Attn: 1557 Compliance Coordinator, 1-877-517-0020, 1-877-517-0021 (fax), PEEHIP.Info@rsa-al.gov (email).
