Why work for the Maryland Judiciary?

The Maryland Judiciary understands the importance of family and children. Our family-friendly benefit practices and policies offer the support and flexibility you need at work and at home. As employees of the State of Maryland, Judiciary employees enjoy many benefits that help them balance their work and personal responsibilities. 

Some of our many generous benefits include:

Leave Benefits

Our generous leave package includes from 10 to 25 days of annual (vacation) leave per year, depending on seniority, as well as six personal days per year. In addition, the State offers eleven paid holidays (12 in the years of a state-wide general election) and fifteen days of sick leave per year. Our leave policies also adhere to the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 and other applicable federal and Maryland laws.

Health Coverage

When you come to work for the Maryland Judiciary, you and your family may benefit from our medical, prescription, dental and vision coverage. You may also be eligible for life, accidental death and dismemberment and long-term care insurance plans at low group rates.

Retirement Benefits

Regular Judiciary employees must participate in a contributory defined benefit pension plan in which they are vested after ten years. Employees are also eligible to participate in two supplemental retirement plans: the 457 Deferred Compensation Plan and the 401(k) Savings and Investment Plan.

Reduced Child and Health Care Costs

Working for the Judiciary entitles you to participate in Health Care and Day Care Flexible Spending Accounts. These plans allow you to save, on a pre-tax basis, for health care and day care costs incurred during the plan year.
