Retiree Information & Resources

Welcome Frederick County Government Retirees!

This page gives you access to both information and resources that may prove useful to you in your retirement. Human Resources has included links to forms you may need and to the current retiree newsletter. Please note that pension information is specific to the Frederick County Employees Retirement Plan and does not apply to county employees who participate in the State of Maryland Retirement System. Information about Frederick County Government retiree health benefits can also be found on this page.


The 1099Rs will be mailed to your home address by January 31, 2017.  Keep in mind, if you turned 59 1/2 in 2016, you will receive two 1099Rs.  One for the distribution code of 2—early exception and one for the distribution code of 7—normal retirement. If you do not receive your 1099R and/or have any questions regarding the form, please contact Human Resources at 301-600-1625. 

Please watch your mail for a letter announcing the search to fill two vacancies on the Retirement Plan Committee. It is County Executive Gardner’s desire to have a retiree fill one of the vacant seats. Details are outlined in the letter.
Feel free to contact Joyce Grossnickle with any questions– 301-600-1102.

Information on the  state of the Retirement Plan will be posted on the County website in March.
