Baltimore County Employees Retirement System

Welcome to the Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS) Web page for the Baltimore County Employees' Retirement System (ERS).  This Web page is designed to assist you in the retirement process.


Information regarding your ERS membership, such as vesting, retirement eligibility, etc., is available by contacting ERS at 410-887-8246, or by e-mailing [email protected].

Click here for the ERS homepage.


Have all of your information and ready to retire?  If you are considering retiring within next 12 months, please review the Retirement Checklist-ERS Members regarding the necessary steps for retiring. Six months prior to retirement, ERS will prepare an estimate for you. Two months prior to retirement, you will schedule a meeting with ERS to complete your final paperwork required to collect your pension.

Once your forms are complete, contact one of our retirement representatives (443-809-8949) for a confidential one-on-one meeting.  During the meeting, the retirement representative will answer any questions you may have and provide you with information to enroll in BCPS Retiree benefits plans.
