URGENT, PLEASE TAKE NOTE – Fwd: SURS Presentation on Pension Reform at NEIU Main Campus

Dear colleagues,

Please do not miss the opportunity to go to this Presentation by SURS. I think you should reschedule things if you need to do so. It is imperative that those of us near retirement get informed and I think it is important for everyone to be at these sessions.

Thanks for your attention to this and all the best,


There will be an SURS presentation on pension reform changes on Thursday, April 17, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., in Alumni Hall. Members should bring a copy of their 2013 Benefit Summary Statements to the presentation, available from their member account at www.surs.org.

To assist you in determining how the recent pension law changes will affect your annuity, the SURS website has an estimator that will allow you to enter a current and future date (after July 1st) to determine any changes. You will need your SURS ID number which can be found on an employee’s SURS October 2013 statement or by contacting SURS for your ID number. SURS may be called at 217-378-8800 or (800) 275-7877.

Any employee considering retirement in the near future is encouraged to contact SURS for more information.
