Open Enrollment

The annual benefits open enrollment period for Cape Fear Community College is happening October 9–27, 2023.

The only exception is for a Qualifying Life Event change defined by the IRS. A plan change due to a family status change must be initiated within 30 days of the qualifying event.

Optional Retirement

Open Enrollment is a great time to evaluate your optional supplement retirement accounts! Employees who wish to save for retirement other than through the state retirement system may choose to invest in a 401(k) or 457 plan through Prudential. The College does not match any of these contributions, but employees may have their contributions deducted through payroll deduction.

Please visit our optional retirement webpage for more information and/or to schedule an appointment with our supplemental retirement counselor (Matt Dominelli).
