NC 401K and NC 457 Plans

    • The N.C. Supplemental Retirement Plans (401K, 457 and 403b) are administered by Prudential Retirement.

      To enroll in the 401K plan an employee must be a contributing member (full-time 30+ hrs. per week) to the N.C. Teachers & State Employees Retirement System. 

      The 457 plan is open to all full-time and part-time employees.

      Employees should contact Prudential Retirement directly at 1-866-NCPLANS (1-866-627-5267) to enroll in one of these plans, make changes to your current plan, cancel your payroll contribution or to inquire about a loan/withdrawal.

      You may also contact our local Prudential Senior Retirement Education Mgr., Ms. Jodie Musselwhite, at (704) 219-9432 or

      Ms. Musselwhite is available to assist you with enrollment, changes or to review your investment portfolio.

      If you have any questions about your payroll deduction please contact Ms. Brenda Dixon at (704) 296.5315 (IEP# 4076) or

      NOTE:  The amount that an employee can contribute to their 401K plan in 2019 is $19,000.  The age-based additional amount an employee who is 50 and older by December 31, 2019, can contribute remains unchanged at $6,000 (per IRS requirement 402(g) limits) for a total of $25,000.
      If an employee is participating in both a 401K and a 403b plan, the contribution limits must be coordinated so that the maximum deferral between the two plans does not exceed $19,000 (or $25,000).
      A rollover from a previous employers retirement plan does not impact the maximum amount an employee can contribute to either of these plans.
      The contribution limits for 2019 can include Roth after-tax contributions, pre-tax contributions, or a combination of the two.
      You may increase/decrease your contribution rate at any time.  You may stop contributions at any time.  Your account is always 100% vested.
      UCPS does not offer an employer match for these plans.
