2016 Employer Rate Meetings

March 21, 2016

Executive Summary

Beginning April 26, 2016, IMRF will present a series of Employer Rate Meetings throughout the state. These meetings will review the impact of year-end financial and actuarial data on IMRF, and the data's estimated impact on individual employers.

Generally, each Employer Rate Meeting lasts approximately 90 minutes and consists of a formal presentation followed by a question-and-answer session. IMRF encourages you, your chief financial officer, other officials, governing body members, and interested parties from your employer to attend the meeting scheduled in your area.

Advance registration is requested for the Employer Rate Meetings. You can register online through IMRF Employer Access. If you do not have an Employer Access account, complete and return a registration form to IMRF by mail, fax, or email. If registering by mail, fax, or email, please allow time for IMRF to receive the form and return a registration confirmation with directions to the meeting.
