FAQs for Retired Teachers

When is my monthly benefit payment issued?

In accordance with Public Act No. 00-187 Section 10-183ii, retirement benefit checks are mailed one business day before the last business day of the month. 

The Board wires monthly payments via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Form on the last business day of each month.  The account must be a personal account and not a business, trust, or other form of account.  The current Check Mailing/EFT Schedule is available on the Retired Teacher Publications page for download.
