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.
