I've completed all of the forms, when do I get my first retirement check?
Once you have returned all of your forms to the retirement system, you will begin to receive your retirement payments, and they are paid by the retirement system in Raleigh, not by Rowan County. The first payment is an actual paper check, and thereafter, your payment is automatically direct deposited into the account your provided to the retirement system during the application process. Retirement payments are generally issued on the 25th of each month except for December, when payment is made on the 20th of the month.

After your retirement payments begin, if you have any questions regarding payments, tax with holdings, or anything else, you should contact the retirement system directly at 877-733-4191.
