myNCRetirement Popular Topics: Estimates!

Member Services and our online resources (www.myNCRetirement.com) are here to help, wherever you are. One of the most popular topics in the Call Center is about estimates and what a member may receive in retirement. In this video, a representative from our Member Services team talks through this popular question.

Estimates are intended to serve as a general source of reference and may not reflect your actual retirement benefit amount. Estimates should not be considered a representation, contract or guarantee of any benefit. The amount of benefit that you may be eligible to receive is governed by North Carolina law.

Please visit ORBIT for more information about estimates. We have an public estimate calculator for general purposes here: https://orbit.myncretirement.com/Common/PublicCreateEstimate. Logging into your ORBIT account (https://orbit.myncretirement.com), you will have access to more customized calculators and resources.

NC Treasurer Dale Folwell discusses state's pension plan - State employees rely on the pension plan when they retire

Here in North Carolina, state employees rely on our government's pension plan to help save for retirement.

There are over 27,000 active duty law enforcement officers are in the pension plan, and that doesn't include the number of retired officers who are still on the plan.

The valuation for the state plan is at the highest in its history, at $105 billion.

Rolling into the new year on the right foot, with a "Fee Holiday" extension through 2020.

“Everything we do in this department is for the customer — those that teach, protect and serve,” Treasurer Folwell said. “We are committed to driving down costs, reducing complexity and increasing the value of these plans for our hard-working teachers, troopers and other public employees.”

The fee holiday will eliminate NC 401(k) and NC 457 participants’ annual administrative fees charged by the department and the board. Each participant is charged 25 cents for each $1,000 held in an account. Other fees, including the fee charged by Prudential, will continue to apply.

Just noticed these are from 2016??
Is there a raise this year? All my friends are receiving ones from the companies they were employed with. Hoping NC would also. Are the bigwigs getting one?
it is a shame that you are making my family grieve twice over the way you are treating the death of my father
Why does the state of N.C. deduct taxes on retirement?
Will Local Government Retirees receive a pay increase this year they have been few and far between since I retired.
I am a retired classroom teacher who hasn't received the W-2 from Wake County yet. Can you help me ?
Where can I find the cost of spouse health insurance coverage for a retired NC teacher?
How can I find out my retirement #?
I just retired...YAY! What can I do with my 401k if I want to keep saving and not draw from it yet?
As a retiree we do enjoy surprises but not sure about the extra pay in our checks??
when do State and County retirees get a reasonable raise. Between the State and County I work on going for 32+ years. I receive a 22.00 one time bonus this year. This is a insult to all retirees . What would you think of that if you were a retiree?
Is social security leveling, option 4, going away at the end of this year?
