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 needs today!
As in the past, your ABS shows service in the N.C. Retirement Systems as of Dec. 31, 2014, Social Security, and contributions to the NC 401(k) and NC 457 Plans. Using that information, the statement provides a comparison of your projected monthly income to your projected monthly need. This will help you better understand what factors contribute to your income and how you can improve your long-term savings.
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.
It’s never too early to start thinking about your retirement, so please take a moment to access your Annual Benefits Statement by going to MyNCRetirement.com. From there you can link to ORBIT, log into your personal account and “View Annual Benefits Statement” to view or print your statement.
You can also go to the Annual Benefits Statement page of our website where you will find:
