NC 403b Program

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 will transition 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 committment to helping Program participants achieve retirement readiness. ALL participants were sent a letter ​with details about the transition on January 14, 2017.
