Attention active SURS members in the Traditional and Portable Plans, you can log on to the SURS secure Member Website and view your current account information via your personal Member Summary page.
If you notice a change in your July benefit payment, please note that it is likely due to an increase in insurance premiums for members and dependents.
The insurance information was distributed by the Illinois Department of Central Management Services (CMS) during the recent Benefit Choice Period that ended June 1. The new premiums begin July 1.
SURS will resume sending medical recheck requests to disability benefit (DB) and disability retirement annuity (DRA) recipients beginning this week. The requests had been temporarily discontinued due to the COVID-19 pandemic making it difficult to schedule required reevaluation appointments.
SURS has a diverse investment portfolio specifically designed to protect against market risk and produce steady returns over a long-term period. Member retirement benefits continue to be secure.
The FY 2021 Benefit Choice Period to make health insurance changes is May 1 through June 1, 2020. This affects SURS active members as well as annuitants and survivors not enrolled in the Medicare Advantage 'TRAIL' Program.
SURS members are receiving unsolicited, potentially misleading emails from companies offering retirement counseling. These emails may appear to come from SURS or appear to represent SURS. They do not.
