Employees who are eligible for pension benefits are enrolled in either the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund (IMRF) or the Illinois Teachers Retirement System (TRS).
Employees working in non-certified positions greater than 600 hours per year, must contribute to the IMRF. Members are required to contribute 4.5% of their gross pay to the IMRF. The contribution is tax deferred and remitted monthly. The District also contributes to the IMRF.
Employees working in certified positions must contribute to TRS. Currently, the District calculates and remits that contribution to TRS.
