Employers provide a vital link between members and TRS. They forward member and employer contributions, report member earnings, member service credit information, and disseminate information about TRS to more than 159,000 active members. Information provided by employers determines the members' current service credit, creditable earnings, and retirement contributions.

Collective Bargaining Agreements Collection Portal Online

In February, Teachers’ Retirement System activated its new CBA/Contract Collection Portal within the Employer Access area of the TRS website. This new portal has been established to help TRS and employers administer Public Act 100-0587, signed into law June 4, 2018, that may affect the amount of employer contributions paid to TRS. 

Please read Employer Bulletin 19-12, entitled "CBA Collection Now Online; Employer Submissions Required."

For additional information, please refer to the following resources:  Frequently Asked Questions web page,  Completing the CBA Collection Process tutorial and Employer Bulletin 19-09.  If you have any questions, contact TRS Employer Services at or 888-678-3675, option 1.
