About Us

The North Carolina Retirement Systems is a division of the Department of State Treasurer, and we administer the pension benefits for state and local government employees. We also administer the Supplemental Retirement Plans (NC 401(k) and NC 457 Plans), retirement savings accounts designed to help public employees in North Carolina achieve their retirement goals.

Whether you're new to public service or you've been retired from a state or local government employer for decades, understanding your pension benefits is important, and we're here to help. The first step is to create an ORBIT account so you can manage your pension account and stay informed about statute changes that might affect you. Then, follow us on Facebook to see all the ways we're working to preserve and protect your retirement benefits.
