2015 Annual Benefits Statements Now Available!

Your 2015 Annual Benefit Statement (ABS) is in your personal ORBIT account now. You can assess your retirement planning needs today! 

Please note – MEMBERS OF THE STATE RETIREMENT SYSTEM (this does not apply to members of the Optional Retirement System with TIAA-CREF or Fidelity)

Your ABS shows your years of service in the NC Retirement Systems as of Dec. 31, 2015, your estimated retirement benefits from your pension, your estimated Social Security income, and your contributions to the NC 401(k) and NC 457 Plans, and the 403(b) Program, if you’ve been participating in those programs. The ABS also calculates any outside assets (other pensions, IRAs, etc.) if you entered them into the Retirement Income Calculator on the Prudential site.

Using all this information, the ABS 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 take action, if necessary, for a more secure retirement.

It’s never too early to start thinking about your retirement, so please take a moment to access your 2015 ABS by going to MyNCRetirement.com. From there, 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:

  • A User Guide training tutorial
  • Frequently Asked Questions
  • An animated video about the Annual Benefits Statement
  • Links to resources for all ages and career stages

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.
