Maryland State Retirement Agency
120 E. Baltimore St.
Baltimore, MD 21202

Main Purpose of Job

These positions serve as Supervisor of its respective unit. The responsibilities for each are listed below.

Revisions Processing Unit Supervisor
The Supervisor of the Revisions Processing Unit is primarily responsible for ensuring accurate and timely revisions to retirement accounts and ensuring timely payments to payees of the System through manual retroactive payments. A revision to a retirement record is necessary any time the Agency receives new information from the payee or employer after the initial retirement record has been processed and created. Typical revisions result from a retiree’s election to change their retirement option, change their designated beneficiary, beneficiary predeceases the retiree, the employer certifies a change in the amount of unused sick leave from that certified at retirement, retiree purchases additional service credit or files for military credit prior to retirement but the transactions occur after the effective date of retirement or processing, changes in salary that impact the calculation of the retiree’s Average Final Compensation based upon new information provided by the employer, and account revisions based on internal system reports including the 900 difference report. Revisions to retirement records or processing of adjustments to retirements after the initial benefit payment generally require staff to create manual payments to affected payees.

Estimate Processing Unit Supervisor:
The Supervisor of the Estimate Processing Unit is primarily responsible for ensuring the accurate and timely processing of estimate applications. The supervisor should work with staff to ensure incoming estimate applications are properly prepared and reviewed for batching. The estimate notice is the document the member uses to make their financial retirement decisions. It provides estimated allowance amounts of the basic and optional allowances. Only within the first 30 days following retirement may a retiree change their option selection. Accuracy is critical as the individual makes a lifetime financial decision based upon the numbers generated and released in the notice issued to the member. This includes service, disability, and purchase of service estimates. Applications are subject to a complete audit of the member’s historical pension membership records, from date of hire to the date of projected retirement. The audit is to verify and confirm that the member paid the statutory required member contributions, the record reflects accurate membership, military, purchased, approved leave and eligibility service credits as well as the service was credited to the proper benefit tier to ensure proper benefit formula is applied to the calculation, and the employer reports accurate actual and annualized salaries each fiscal year.
