Description Summary: 
A brief history of the SURS Members Advisory Committee (SURSMAC).

From 1941 (when the Universities Retirement System was created by law) to 1953, the University of Illinois had its own advisory committee to advise the president on retirement system matters. The president then referred specific recommendations to the Board of Trustees of the Retirement System.

Retirement Annuity

Description Summary: 
Information regarding annuity payments and estimates.

If you are at least four years away from retirement, you can schedule a counseling appointment by calling 1-800-ASK-SURS or 378-8800 in the Champaign-Urbana area. When you call to schedule, SURS will send you a Retirement Estimate Request form. You are not required to retire on the date you list on this form. Your counselor needs this information to provide you with a projected monthly retirement annuity amount at your appointment.
