Welcome to MEABF.org
MEABF is a defined benefit, single employer benefit plan that was established in 1921 by
an act of the Illinois General Assembly to provide disability and retirement benefits to
qualified employees of the City of Chicago and the Chicago Board of Education. Our sole
purpose is to pay earned benefits to our members, which is funded by a combination of
member contributions, taxes levied by the City of Chicago, and investment earnings from
Plan reserves. MEABF is a component unit of the City of Chicago, and as such, is
included in the City of Chicago's financial statements as a pension trust fund.
We take care of the people who take care of Chicago.

Mary J. Jones v Municipal Employees' Annuity and Benefit Fund of Chicago - UpdateOn July 29, 2015 Judge Rita A. Novak denied the City of Chicago’s request to stay her ruling regarding Public Act 98-0641. With this denial MEABF will begin the process of unwinding the requirements of Public Act 98-0641. As the volume of this process is unprecedented and to ensure that all requirements are done properly, we are unable to determine at this time how long this will take.
We ask for your patience during the historical time and we will make every attempt to complete these requirements in a timely manner.
