Pension Reform Legislation

On December 3, 2013 the Illinois House and Senate passed legislation significantly changing the pension benefits of four of the five state pension systems including SURS. On December 5, 2013, Gov. Quinn signed the legislation into law becoming Public Act 98-0599. SUAA is challenging the constitutionality of the Act by filing a lawsuit with a court in Champaign County.
