ATTENTION State of NC Retirees! If you accept a position in which you work more than 30 hours/week OR are a variable hour employee (such as a substitute teacher) and average working more than 30 hours/week, you are at risk of losing your retiree health insurance plan. You would be offered a plan with fewer benefits (such as a $5,000 deductible) than the plan you currently have. Please plan carefully so that you are not placed in this situation.
