NC 401(k), NC 457, and NC403(b) Program

Exciting changes are coming to the NC Total Retirement Plans fund line-up and the popular asset allocation tool GoalMaker! A letter detailing these exciting changes will be mailed to all participants in the NC 401((k)/NC 457 Plans and the  NC 403(b) Program this month.
Saving on your own in one of the NC Total Retirement Plans is an important step toward retirement readiness - meaning you can replace 80% of your pre-retirement income each year throughout your retirement!​

NC 401(k) and NC 457 Plans
The NC 401(k) and NC 457 Plans are defined contribution plans, which consist of your personal contributions, any employer contributions (if applicable), and any earnings on the plan investments you’ve selected.

Features of these plans include pre-tax contributions, Roth after-tax contributions, flexible withdrawal options, and more! MANY employers offer a contribution or match for members who save on their own in the NC 401(k) or NC 457 Plans.

NC 403b Program for K-12 and Community College Faculty and Staff

The NC 403(b) Program is a centrally-administered, award-winning retirement option available to K-12 public school and community college employees. On February 22, 2017, the assets, as well as the recordkeeping and communications services for the NC 403(b) Program transitioned from TIAA to Prudential Retirement®. This transition is meaningful because it reflects the Department of State Treasurer's and the Supplemental Retirement Board of Trustee's continued ​commitment to helping Program participants achieve retirement readiness. ALL participants were sent a letter ​with details about the transition on January 14, 2017.
