TRS staff members are working from home due to the coronavirus pandemic. Ensuring that all benefits are paid to retired members and beneficiaries is our number one priority.
Members may experience a slower response than they are used to from TRS during the duration of the work-from-home order.
TRS offices are closed for all official State of Illinois holidays.
