Welcome to MEABF.org
We take care of the people who take care of Chicago.
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.
The MEABF is participating in the City of Chicago's Civilian Retirement Seminar on February 21, 2018 beginning at 8:30 a.m. in the City of Chicago Public Safety Headquarters located at 3510 South Michigan Avenue. You can see the agenda for the seminar here.
This seminar is for City of Chicago employees only.
