The electronic structures of the manifold of potential energy surfaces generated in the lower energy range by the interaction of the MgH+(X1Σ+) cationic molecule with Rb(2S) neutral atom are obtained over a broad range of Jacobi coordinates from strongly correlated ab initio calculations which use a Multireference (MR) wavefunction within a Complete Active Space (CAS) approach. The relative features of the lowest five surfaces are analyzed in terms of possible collisional outcomes when employed to model the ultracold dynamics of ionic molecular partners.
