2. Click on a link to listen to the Retirement Forms Preparation and Submission presentation that will detail how to prepare your retirement forms and return them to AACPS for processing and forwarding to Maryland State Retirement;
3. Click on a link to read our letter summarizing how to prepare and submit forms to AACPS.

New Maryland State Retirement Pension Estimator Tool: MySRPS
The Maryland State Retirement and Pension System now offers members access to a secure website to obtain an instant estimate of your monthly pension payment. This process, in the past using Form 9, would take six to 16 weeks to obtain the results.
The new site allows participants to obtain information and make transactions related to their retirement account.
At MySRPS (My State Retirement Pension System) you can estimate your pension using various retirement dates to compare benefits. It even provides a way to estimate the value of your unused sick days.
