In the event of the death of a member, immediately notify the Personnel Service Board Office at 410-396-2546 or 410-369- 2550. This office handles every benefit the beneficiary, spouse or family is entitled to.
In most cases a member of the department will stop out to your house (if within a reasonable distance). They will assist in completing all the necessary paperwork for pensions, life insurance, credit union, health insurance, etc. This home visit will be after the funeral and when the beneficiary is emotionally up to it.
If the beneficiary is living out of state the documentation will be handled by mail. A benefit form will be left with the beneficiary (or spouse or family of the deceased) indicating all of the benefits they will be receiving.
