Retirement Systems Reciprocal Act

The Reciprocal Act ensures continuous pension credits for public employment in Illinois. Pension credits of more than one year in any reciprocal system may be used to meet qualifications for retirement or survivor benefits. Reciprocity does not apply to any other retirement system benefit. The Reciprocal Systems have published a brochure to provide members with uniform information about the Reciprocal Act.


Printed brochures are also available from our office.
