Retirement Coordinator Designation

Post

Retirement coordinators are designated by participating employers to serve as liaisons between the employer and the State Retirement Agency. 

Retirement Coordinator Designation

Employers may designate more than one coordinator to serve as liaisons between the employer and the State Retirement Agency. A separate form must be used to designate each coordinator. To designate a retirement coordinator, the employer’s appointing authority completes and signs the Designation/Removal of Retirement Coordinator (Form 214). 

Appointing Authority

According to State Personnel and Pensions Article §1–101(b) an “Appointing authority” means an individual or a unit of government that has the power to make appointments and terminate employment. A retirement coordinator cannot designate him or herself.

Primary Coordinator

Employers with more than one coordinator may designate a primary coordinator to receive all notices or reports such as the Enrollment Exception Report. Employers may designate only one “primary” coordinator.

Retirement Coordinator Removal

Employers remove coordinators no longer designated to receive information using the Designation/Removal of Retirement Coordinator (Form 214).
