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 COVID-19 pandemic, ERSC is not holding in-person Retirement Informational Sessions or Forms Workshops. Instead, recorded webinars that provide all of the information employees will need when considering retirement are available at the following links:
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 viewing 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, you may find it 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, Retirement Informational Sessions and Forms Workshops will be scheduled and listed on the ERSC webpage.
