Sending Required Documents

You will have the opportunity to select whether you want to upload copies of your required documents or whether you would prefer to fax or mail copies of these documents.  

Please note that once you make your decision and click “Save and Continue,” you cannot change that selection.  

  • For example, if you select that you want to upload your documents, you must upload all requested and required documents in order for your application to be processed.  
  • If you select that you want to fax/mail your documents, you will not be able to upload your required documents. If you choose to fax your documents to the Retirement System, please fax them to (919) 855-5800. If you know your member ID number, please write it at the top of each page faxed, if possible. You can find your member ID by logging in to ORBIT. After successfully logging in, click on “Maintain Personal Information” to see your member ID number (listed in the top section along with your name and date of birth). 

Documents that are uploaded can only be .pdf, .jpg, .jpeg, .png or .gif. Other file types will not be accepted. If you do not have access to a scanner, you can take a picture of each document using your smart phone or other camera and upload the picture file. Whichever option you choose, make sure the document is legible and not blurry.
