Retiree Information & Resources

Welcome Frederick County Government Retirees!

Frederick County Government is dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service and has recently partnered with Retirement Focus managed by Findley, Inc. (“Retirement Focus”) and Wilmington Trust to support the participants of our retirement plans.  While Frederick County Government will remain the Plan Sponsor of the Retirement Plan, effective October 1, 2020, the service and administration of your retirement benefit payments will be maintained by Retirement Focus.

 

Effective with your October 1, 2020 payment, Wilmington Trust will begin issuing monthly payments on behalf of the plan.  You will no longer receive payments from Frederick County Government.   With this change, you do not have to take any action. We have provided answers to many of the most common questions HERE

 

To assist you with your initial login and an introduction to the self-service tools now available, please refer to the Retirement Focus User Guide.


We anticipate a smooth transition during this change, but please feel free to contact Retirement Focus should you have any questions or concerns at 833-771-1496. 

 

 

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
