Retirement Benefit Estimator

Retirement Criteria

(*) Required Information



The Retirement Estimator is intended to assist you in estimating your monthly (early reduced or regular unreduced) service retirement benefits. It does not calculate disability retirement benefits, and it cannot replace the Retirement System’s actual calculation of benefits when you retire. If you have Agricultural Extension service, are converting from disability to service retirement, or have multiple accounts, this estimate will not be accurate, and you should contact the Retirement System for information.

To obtain a benefit estimate using your actual retirement account information, please log on to ORBIT and click View Your Benefit Estimate. This estimator is not a guarantee that you will receive the benefit options calculated by its use. Future legislative changes may result in a different estimate of benefits. The benefit you receive from the Retirement System will be determined by the North Carolina Department of State Treasurer Retirement Systems Division when you retire and elect the option available to you at that time.

DISCLAIMER: The information provided here is intended to serve as a general source of reference for early reduced and regular unreduced service retirement benefits from the Teachers' and State Employees' Retirement System and the Local Governmental Employees' Retirement System. It does not estimate disability retirement benefits. While the information is intended to be as accurate as possible, it is subject to the detailed provisions of North Carolina Statutes. The information provided by running an estimate cannot alter, modify, or otherwise change the controlling legal documents or General Statutes in any way, nor can any right accrue by reason of any information provided or omission of information provided herein. This estimate will not reflect the retirement benefit amount that will be payable for retirement dates on and after January 1, 2015, if the benefit exceeds the IRS section 415(b) annual pension benefit limit.
