Retiree Benefits

The State Employees Association of North Carolina is the largest non-union public employees association in the nation, representing all active and retired employees of state government.

Approximately 25 percent of SEANC's 57,000 members are retirees, and that number keeps growing every day. The number one priority of the Association is the protection and enhancement of the rights and benefits of all state employees, active and retired. SEANC addresses state employee issues in the General Assembly, with the Governor and before the State Health Plan and Retirement System Boards of Trustees.

To ensure that retiree interests are a primary focus of the Association, the SEANC Retiree Council was formed to address the concerns of retired members and advise SEANC lobbyists on retirement issues under consideration in the legislature. The Council monitors closely issues relating to health care, retirement cost-of-living-adjustments (COLAs) and formula increases, and retiree pension taxation, among others. In fact, SEANC was the only association to take an active role in opposing the taxation of retiree pension benefits by filing a "friend of the court" in the recently settled Bailey/Emory/Patton retirement taxation lawsuit.

Retirees have a friend, a spokesman and a time-tested advocate in the State Employees Association of North Carolina. Realizing its value, thousands of retired state employees have joined SEANC in the spirit of accomplishment through collective action. And you can too!

District 19 has its own Retirees' Chapter which meets for breakfast on the 4th Tuesday morning of each month at 8:30. For information, call Phyllis Fearrington at 929-2284.
