  1. Just want to point out and emphasize that most ‘local government’ employees (excluding teachers) are part of the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund (IMRF). This pension system has been and continues to be extremely well managed and properly funded. And, as a retiree from Lake County government, I’d like to point out that we DO NOT receive paid health insurance as a post employment benefit. And we DO NOT receive compounded cost of living increases in our pension. It’s unfortunate that IMRF and retirees like me are often viewed as part of the State of Illinois pension mess.
