Coming Soon: 2016 Annual Benefits Statements!

If you are a current North Carolina public employee with more than 12 months of service (as of Dec.31, 2016) your 2016 Annual Benefits Statement will post to your ORBIT account in early May. Your ABS will show your projected sources of income in retirement. 

Your ABS lists your service in the NC Retirement Systems as of Dec. 31, 2016, Social Security, and contributions to the NC 401(k) and NC 457 Plans, and the 403(b) Program. The statement also calculates any outside assets (other 401(k), IRA accounts, etc.) that you entered into the Retirement Income Calculator on the Prudential site. These combined assets will be calculated into your projected monthly retirement income. 

Stay tuned for the announcement about when you can access your Annual Benefits Statement.

Former Retirement Systems Division Phone Number Possibly Being Used By Scammers

The Retirement Systems Division has been informed that a previous phone number associated with the Division is being used by a company that provides possible misleading information about the opportunity to qualify for a gift card or rebate voucher. Upon dialing the old number, callers are prompted to provide personal information, including credit card information and date of birth, in exchange for the opportunity to qualify for the offer. 

This issue has been reported to the N.C. Department of Justice’s Consumer Protection Division which is investigating the matter. 

The Retirement Systems Division encourages you to be mindful of potential scams and refrain from providing personal information over the phone requested by unauthorized personnel. The updated number for the Retirement Systems Division is 877-NC-SECURE (877-627-3287).

ORBIT Redesign Launched January 28

On January 28, 2017, the NC Department of State Treasurer launched its redesigned ORBIT site. ORBIT provides members secure access to their personal retirement account information 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

The new site has a “responsive” design – meaning it will be easier to access from mobile devices, such as cell phones. The site also has enhanced security features, to help make members’ personal information more secure. Lastly, the new design incorporates NC Total Retirement branding to maintain a consistent “look and feel” across RSD websites. Head to ORBIT today to check it out!
