We hope you enjoyed your new hire orientation on August 12. Be on the lookout for an evaluation survey in your email inbox within the next week. We appreciate your feedback.
You will need to log onto the eEnroll website in order to sign up for the State Health Plan. Your username is your first name, first initial of your last name, and the last 4 digits of your social security number (unless I have informed you otherwise). Your default password is your social security number, no spaces or dashes. The website is http://cfcc.hrintouch.com.
If you are interested in any of the optional benefits we went over during orientation (dental, vision, life insurance, FSA account), you will need to turn in the paper forms to the HR department by Friday. You may also scan and email them to email@example.com if you are located away from the downtown campus. If you are interested in any of the other benefits mentioned in the Wellington Benefits booklet, you will need to contact Wellington Benefits directly at (800) 924-3539.
If you would like to review the slideshow presented during orientation, click on the New Hires link to the right.
Welcome to Cape Fear Community College, and let us know if you need anything as you get settled in!

Some full-time employees may have recently received an email from Aaron Whitesell, HR Assistant, concerning their beneficiaries for the retirement system.
This email was sent to anyone who currently does NOT have beneficiaries listed for their retirement contributions or for the death benefit provided by the retirement system. If an active employee dies without choosing beneficiaries, these funds are paid out to his/her estate instead.
This may also be a good time for all employees to double-check to make sure the beneficiary information is up-to-date in the system. In order to review your beneficiary selections:
- Visit www.myncretirement.com.
- Click on the ORBIT logo.
- Register your account (or log-in if you already have).
- Click on View Account Summary and you should see the option to add beneficiaries.
Let us know if you have any difficulty accessing the system or adding in your information!

In the future if you would like to view them, you can just click on the Personnel Action Report category, listed at the bottom of this page.

The retirement system does not currently have any local retirement planning conferences on the schedule. However, they have provided videos for employees to view if they are unable to attend a conference or would like to learn more when no conferences are scheduled. These videos (along with the slideshow presented at the planning conference) can be found on their website at www.myncretirement.com. Links are also provided below:

Additionally, the website provides information on your individual account through the ORBIT system as well as retirement calculators, manuals, publications and a list of frequently asked questions.

After a lot of planning and some great help from the IT Services department, we have launched our new (and hopefully improved) Human Resources department website. Take a moment to look around, and please let us know what you think by sending us an email.
In the future, look for information on benefit changes, open enrollment, Personnel Action Reports, training sessions and other HR events on this news blog.
