Our lives are not disposable and the continuation of our Pension and Pension benefits is not negotiable.   We have put in years of service with the State government to acquire our benefits and our full pension.  Around the country, public sector retiree benefits are now being used to balance budgets and pay for new programs.   We do not want the State of Maryland to renege on their promise to provide the benefits we paid for to be available during our retirement.   


      We are your grandparents, your aunts and uncles, and whatever affects us will have a ripple effect upon the rest of society.  We carry wisdom and experience with our age and should not be seen as a liability, but as a tremendous asset. WE MATTER and United we are UNSTOPPABLE.

Together We Can  -  HOW?

Trees Reflection in the Water

United We Matter Meetings - Attend

  • United We Matter holds an annual meeting to update members on the challenges to their pensions and pension benefits and United We Matter's response to preserve those benefits. 

  • United We Matter, in conjunction with the Maryland RXdrug Coverage Facebook Group holds meetings around the State to inform Maryland State Retirees of the progress of the Lawsuit, Fitch v. Maryland as well as the legislative efforts to restore prescription drug benefits.  (Due to Covid-19 restrictions, United We Matter now holds all meetings online. ) 

  • United We Matter keeps its members apprised of the latest threats or challenges to their benefits by sending out a quarterly newsletter and holding meetings. 

Volunteer to Help - It makes a difference

  • United We Matter mobilizes our team of volunteer state retirees to organize, identify and correlate state retirees to make a real difference. 

  • Join us to see what can be accomplished when you get an impassioned team of State retirees to focus on the preservation of their public sector benefits they earned. 

  • If you are housebound, Help us contact your state and local lawmakers  to emphasize our commitment to preserving State retirees benefits. 

Community Outreach -  Help others

  • Maryland State retirees have already demonstrated their commitment by devoting years of service to the State.  State retirees worked for less money to ensure receipt of their retirement benefits.  As they grow older the need for the services earned is more than ever.  Community outreach makes a concerted effort to reach these retirees.

  • Help United We Matter and Maryland State Retirees by contacting your local lawmakers and let them know of your support.

  • When State retirees become UNITED it is the best way to secure the preservation of the benefits earned.  

Attend a Rally - Show Your Support

  • During the Maryland General Assembly session, once a week, United We Matter mobilizes to let our lawmakers know that they do not have the moral or legal authority to eliminate benefits that were earned by our years of service. 

  • Rallies are being coordinated in front of the Governor's mansion, the State Delegate House, the Senate Building and individual district offices of crucial lawmakers.  Join United We Matter to see what can be accomplished when you get an impassioned team of State retirees to focus on the preservation of their public sector benefits they earned.
