New TSERS retirement planning videos

The Department of State Treasurer Retirement Systems Division conducts retirement conferences for members of the Teachers’ and State Employees’ Retirement System and the Local Governmental Employees’ Retirement System. Due to work schedules, and/or other commitments sometimes employees are unable to attend a conference, or maybe they did attend a conference and want to hear the information again, the videos below mirror the information presented at these retirement conferences.

Please note: As UNC Health Care has expanded across North Carolina, the need for a term to refer to the Chapel Hill assets on the overall system website became apparent. The UNC Medical Center logo and references, is a term that will be used to refer to State employees that work in the following UNC Health Care facilities: UNC Hospitals and its clinics; UNC Faculty Physicians’ clinics; and the Hillsborough Campus. Please note that on all Human Resources webpages, forms, and documents you will still see “UNC Health Care” term that is referencing the three above mentioned facilities.
