Thinking About Retirement?
The Employee and Retiree Service Center (ERSC) conducts workshops for employees who are considering retirement within the next two years. Due to the pandemic, ERSC is not holding in-person Retirement Informational Sessions or Forms Workshops. Instead, webinars that provide all of the information employees will need when considering retirement have been recorded and are available online. You can find links to the webinars on the Retirement Planning webpage and on the MCPS Retirement Informational and Forms Webinars webpage.
Topics for the Retirement Informational Webinars include a timeline for retirement, eligibility, benefit formulas, leave payout, post-retirement health and life insurance and taxes. The Retirement Forms Webinar covers all required forms for retirement and explains how to complete them.
Prior to watching the webinars, be sure to log in to and visit PenPoint, a self-service retirement system for MCPS employees, where you can determine your pension plan membership. In addition, it may be helpful to review Understanding Your Retirement, a booklet that will guide you through the retirement process.
Once it is safe to hold in-person events, future Retirement Informational Sessions and Forms Workshops will be scheduled and listed on the ERSC webpage.
