If you worked for local or state government in Maryland we know your story because it is our story too.  This company was created by a retired Maryland state employee and it is run by retirees who retired from the public sector  - All volunteer.  All willing to fight to keep the benefits they earned.    Join Us. 


Our members are comprised of volunteer public sector retirees from the State of Maryland.    Each volunteer retiree recognizes that it will be a battle to preserve what they have earned.   This will not deter them or United WE MATTER from waging this fight.  We have the work ethic, the character and the determination to be victorious. We are determined that lawmakers recognize that our years of service mattered, that our contributions to this State mattered, that now that we are in the twilight of our lives - WE MATTER.



"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

Margaret Mead

     In 2011, the State of Maryland eliminated prescription drug coverage for State retirees who were disabled or had reached the age of 65 or older.  Maryland informed these state retirees in 2018 - Seven Years Later.  In response, four Maryland State Retirees, led by Ken Fitch,  filed a complaint to stop the Enforcement of the Budget and Reconciliation Act of 2011 that eliminated their prescription drug coverage.  

     They were successful in obtaining an injunction.

     This effort by the State to eliminate a well earned benefit was the beginning of state retirees' concern.  What will they try to do next?  And how will we stop them? That is why United WE MATTER was created  - to be that mechanism needed to fight against any future threat to those benefits.


          "It always seems impossible until its done."

      United WE MATTER is an a volunteer organization  whose mission is to defend and preserve the rights, pensions and benefits of Maryland retired public sector employees. JOIN US and become informed.  State retirees took lower pay, endured furloughs, wage freezes, layoffs and more on the certainty that they would have their pension and pension benefits during their retirement.  Help us fight to keep the benefits we earned.


"The moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.”
