Please send all county secretary retirement checks to:

Health care and retirement benefits are available to county office secretaries. Benefit plans are offered through employer-provided health care plans (such as Missouri Consolidated Health Care Plan {MCHCP} and Nationwide Retirement Solutions {NRS}).

These benefit are the result of several years' effort by individuals, county councils, county commissions, the State Extension Council, the University of Missouri and the Missouri General Assembly.
