Becoming a member of NCRSP is the gateway to a variety of benefits and programs through numerous organizations.

One benefit for our members is our two registered lobbyists. They work with NC Legislature and other retiree groups such as NCRGEA, NCAE, and SEANC for a unified legislative plan to be presented to the Legislature. This assures review of benefits such as annual cost of living adjustments (COLA) and employer contributions to the retirement investment fund.

Our lobbyists also work to protect key provisions of the State Health Plan which includes:
