The League of Women Voters of IL is studying IL Public Pension plans with a consensus on recommendations for improvement planned for mid-November. The LWV of the Palos Orland Area is participating in this important study by reviewing materials on 5 plans in IL-TRS (Teachers' Retirement System), SERS (State Employees' Retirement System), SURS (State Universities Retirement System) JRS (Judges' Retirement System), and GARS (General Assembly Retirement System. The goal of the study is to reach a position on what types of pension systems are sustainable and appropriate for Illinois and what reforms the League would recommend consistent with the language and wording of the Illinois Constitution.
An important panel meeting will be held on Saturday, October 13th, 9:30 AM, at the Palos Heights Public Library, 12501 S. 71st Avenue. Participants include the Executive Director of TRS, a member of the Illinois General Assembly, and an attorney specializing in school district affairs.
League meetings are open to the public and any citizen wishing to become more informed on this critical issue is urged to attend.
