    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.

    To learn more about the secure website and to enroll in MySRPS, click here
