Mandatory Retirement Plan
The University requires all employees to contribute 8% of your salary towards your retirement plan. Employees may choose one of four retirement vendors: PERA (you must have already been in PERA for one year to enroll), TIAA, Metlife, or VALIC. The University contributes 11.5% of your salary to TIAA, Metlife, or VALIC which are all 401(a) retirement plans and 10.15% to PERA, which is a defined benefit plan. The retirement plans are in lieu of Social Security, which is not an option at UNC.
* ORP Election - Employees who do not select a retirement plan within 60-days will be automatically enrolled in one by Human Resources.
