The Adams County Retirement Plan was created by Adams County on January 1, 1970 and established under Sections 401(a) and 501(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of the United States. The Plan is a multi-employer defined benefit plan which provides retirement, survivor and disability benefits to the employees of Adams County and Rangeview Library District.

The Retirement Board intends to continue the Retirement Plan indefinitely but reserves the right to change the Retirement Plan or discontinue it. Any changes to the Retirement Plan must be for the exclusive benefit of the eligible employees of the Employers and their beneficiaries.
