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 currently is not holding in-person Retirement Informational Sessions or Forms Workshops. Instead, recorded webinars providing all of the information employees will need when considering retirement are available online. You can find links to the webinars on both the Retirement Planning webpage and the MCPS Retirement Informational and Forms Webinars webpage.
Topics for the Retirement Informational Webinar 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, it may be helpful to review Understanding Your Retirement, a booklet that will guide you through the retirement process.
Future Retirement Informational Sessions and Forms Workshops will be scheduled and listed on the ERSC webpage once it is safe to hold in-person events.
