Pension Plan - Maryland State Retirement & Pension System

As the core retirement plan, employees are mandatorily enrolled (some exceptions apply) into either the Maryland State Teacher or Employee Pension system. Employees contribute 7% of their pre-tax earnings into the plan. For more information or forms, the Retirement Agency website is listed under Links to the right of this page.

Supplemental Retirement Program

Employees are also provided the opportunity to participate in a 403(b) or 457(b) supplemental retirement savings plan to augment the pension plan. Employee contributions of their choice are withheld from pay on a pre-tax basis. WCPS works with four investment providers to offer 403(b) programs and one investment provider with the 457(b) plan.  

Take time to review the Comparison Chart under Documents to the right of this page to choose which supplemental plan is best for you. You can enroll in an account or with a new company using the Quick Enroll on the right, OR by following the instructions at Enrolling/Logging into ART’.  Please note, MetLife does not participate in Quick Enroll. To enroll with them, you need to use the other method.
