Local Government Employer Retirement System (LGERS)
CFPUA is proud to be a part of the North Carolina Retirement System for Local Government. This is a "defined benefit" retirement program, meaning benefits are guaranteed based on length of credible service and annual salary. Each employee contributes a mandatory 6% and CFPUA contributes 10.15% as the employer. To be vested, an employee must be employed for five years. Generally, you can retire with full benefits if you meet any of the following:
- Age 65 with 5 years of credible service
- Age 60 with 25 years of credible service
- Completing 30 years of credible service regardless of age
**There are many laws, statutes and individual circumstances that impact credible service. Please contact the NC Retirement Systems Division with specific questions related to credible service.
