Life Events

It is important to be mindful that as an FCPS employee, you may experience life changes such as a marriage, birth or adoption of a child, a death in the family, retirement and other life events that can impact your FCPS benefits.  When a life qualifying event occurs, there is a window for adjusting your current plan. The window for making changes is limited to 30 days from any of the qualified events, making it very important to be aware and act within this timeframe. Please visit the menu item to the right of this page, Life Events to review further information.

The Board of Education of Frederick County and the recognized employee bargaining groups (FCTA, FASSE, and FCASA) jointly reserve the right to modify or amend, in whole or in part, any or all plan provisions at any time.

Employees can find complete details in the FCPS Negotiated Agreements, Policies and/or plan legal documents, which will always govern in case of a dispute.
