You can volunteer to help with hurricane recovery efforts without affecting your retirement benefits, but there are some rules that you should know.
There has been an outpouring of support for everyone impacted by Hurricane Florence, and we've received questions about how our retirees can help without violating Return to Work Laws.
Return to Work Laws
govern how retirees can work for a government agency that is participating in the North Carolina Retirement System. Return to Work Laws apply differently to members of the Teachers' and State Employees' Retirement System (TSERS) and the Local Governmental Employees' Retirement System (LGERS). If you violate these laws, you could be subject to financial penalties and/or possible loss of retirement benefits and health coverage, so it's important for you to know how these laws apply to you.
If you're thinking about volunteering, here's what you need to know.
If you still have questions about your specific situation, please call our Call Center at 877-NC-SECURE (877-627-3287).
Requesting Appointments with the Retirement Systems
- One-on-one appointments are generally reserved for members who are within one year of their retirement date. You will need to bring with you a Custom Benefit Estimate. This estimate can be generated by signing into ORBIT and clicking on "Create Custom Benefit Estimate." If you need an appointment, one-on-one appointments with a retirement counselor are currently booking 3-4 months out. Please plan accordingly.
- If you are applying for Retirement Benefits, please contact your employer to begin this process.
