TEACHERS' RETIREMENT SYSTEM OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS


Contribution Confirmation

TRS employers may wish to confirm with TRS totals that have been remitted for or during a fiscal year. TRS encourages employers to obtain the information directly from the secure Employer Access area of the TRS website. Under Accounting in the left navigation bar, select "Accounts" to view totals or select "Reports" to print totals. One of the reports available is a Fiscal Year Contribution Totals Report (available to employers from April 1 through December 31). Employers should provide that report to auditors requesting remittance information.
