About Us

What is MEABF?

Welcome to MEABF.org, where we take care of people who take care of Chicago

MEABF stands for Municipal Employees’ Annuity and Benefit Fund of Chicago.  We are 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.
