Retirement Plan Selection Information for Exempt Staff and Faculty
Welcome to UMBC!
Upon appointment, you must become a member of either the State Retirement and Pension System’s retirement plan or the Optional Retirement Plan. Please see the comparison chart for details. This is a very important step in the on-boarding process. Please review the information found in the links below to determine your retirement plan selection. In addition, please review the following memo related to recent changes to state law regarding Pension/ORP retirement elections upon hire. You should make this selection as soon as possible to avoid any delay in the receipt of your paycheck. State Law requires a Retirement Selection PRIOR to your first day of employment.
Please view the following quick video on selecting a retirement Plan at UMBC.
Once you have made a selection, complete the Retirement Plan Selection form.
