The 2016 TRS Benefits Reports for all active and inactive members are now available in the secure Member Account Access area: https://trs.illinois.gov/subsections/secureaccountaccess/security/signin.aspx

The report summarizes the following information about a member's TRS account: refundable contributions, beneficiary refund, beneficiaries, sick leave service, 2.2 upgrade information, reciprocal service, refunded service that may be reinstated, optional service, and active service as of June 30, 2016.

Check your beneficiaries on the report and review all the information for accuracy. Contact your employer about any service record or salary errors. Those are reported to TRS by your employer.

Reports are only sent to members who are not yet collecting a benefit. Annuitants do not receive TRS Benefits Reports.
