Redesigned ORBIT Issues
 
Since the redesign of ORBIT, some members have had trouble logging in, whether they are users who already have accounts, or they are logging into ORBIT for the first time. Once in ORBIT, users are also having trouble with security emails, device registration and forgetting their username or password.

The Retirement Systems has created How To videos, along with Frequently Asked Questions​, to help our members log into and navigate ORBIT. These videos and FAQs should help answer some of the most common questions and issues our members are encountering in the redesigned environment.


 

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).        
  

Return to Work 

Some retirees of the Teachers’ and State Employees’ Retirement System and Local Governmental Employees’ Retirement System will officially retire and later be reemployed. If the retiree returns to work for an employer in the Retirement System from which they retired, certain earnings limitations may apply.

 
The Retirement Systems prepared the following guidance publications for LGERS and TSERS about the return-to-work laws.
The earnable allowance is the amount the retiree is allowed to earn per year during reemployment, under most circumstances. Please click on the "Educate Yourself" tab in ORBIT to learn more about reemployment after retirement. Retirees of the Consolidated Judicial Retirement System, Legislative Retirement System, and Registers of Deeds’ Supplemental Pension Fund should contact the Retirement Systems Division to discuss reemployment provisions for their systems.
