Laws and Legislation​


Legislation that Affects You

2018 Legislative Session

This page is designed to give you information about changes enacted by the North Carolina General Assembly that affect the Retirement Systems Division and, in some cases, your benefits. In the 2018 legislative short session, the General Assembly made several changes that affect the Retirement Systems. One change included a one-time supplement for members of the Teachers’ and State Employees’ Retirement System, Legislative Retirement System and Consolidated Judicial Retirement System. For more information, click here.

The Retirement Systems Division is currently working to make administrative changes based on all of the new legislation. While we work through these changes, we are also compiling a brief description of all the legislation that may impact our members. This user-friendly resource will be released by August 31, 2018, and we will include a link on the RSD Facebook page. An entire list of all legislation that impacts the Retirement Systems Division, including minor technical corrections and member-related changes, can be found here.
