Enhanced 2014 Annual Benefits Statements Now Available

If you’re a current North Carolina public employee with more than 12 months of service, your 2014 Annual Benefit Statement is in your personal ORBIT account and you can assess your retirement planning today!
 
Enhanced Features

The 2014 statement has been enhanced so that it calculates any outside assets (other 401(k)s, IRAs, etc.) that you have entered into the Retirement Income Calculator on the Prudential site. And, if you’re a school employee participating in the NC 403(b) Program, then these assets have also been included in this year’s calculation.

  • A User Guide training tutorial
  • Frequently Asked Questions
  • Links to resources for all ages and career stages
