Active Government Employees
Familiarize yourself with the benefits available to you as a member of the North Carolina Retirement Systems. Stay up to date on the news and information that affects your benefits, access your personal retirement account forms and benefit estimators through ORBIT to plan your long-term financial future.

Coming Soon: ORBIT Redesign!

The NC Department of State Treasurer is planning to launch its redesigned ORBIT​ site soon. ORBIT provides members secure access to their personal retirement account information 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

The new site will have a “responsive” design – meaning it will be easier to access from mobile devices, such as cell phones. The site will also have enhanced security features, to help make members’ personal information more secure. Lastly, the new design will incorporate NC Total Retirement branding to maintain a consistent “look and feel” across RSD websites. We will let you know when the improved ORBIT site is available, and we hope you will enjoy using it.

If you’re a member of the Teachers' and State Employees' Retirement System or the Local Governmental Employees’ Retirement System and are nearing retirement, the Retirement Systems has posted Retirement Planning videos on its website to help you understand the process.

The videos address all topics covered during a Retirement Planning Conference. If you’re unable to attend a conference, or would like to review what you saw at a conference you attended, visit one of the websites below today:
