Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Budget Stabilization Act. Makes changes concerning transfers from the General Revenue Fund to the Pension Stabilization Fund. Amends the General Assembly, State Employees, State Universities, Downstate Teachers, and Judges Articles of the Illinois Pension Code. Requires each State-funded retirement system that does not already have a self-managed plan to establish and maintain one. Authorizes participants to irrevocably elect to participate in such a plan. Provides that, for the purpose of calculating traditional benefit package benefits and contributions, the annual salary of a participant may not, except under certain circumstances, exceed certain limits. Requires participation in the self-managed plan to the extent that a participant's salary exceeds the salary cap. Revises the schedule of contributions for participants. Shifts a portion of the employer contributions for downstate teachers and university employees from the State to the actual employer. Authorizes the boards of trustees of each of these retirement systems to triennially recalculate the normal cost of benefit plans that they offer. Defines "traditional benefit package" and "self-managed plan". Changes the formula for calculating the minimum required State contribution to these systems. Provides that the State is contractually obligated to pay the annual required State contribution to these retirement systems. Contains provisions requiring these retirement systems to bring a mandamus action to compel payment of the required State contribution. Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement. Effective immediately.

 Pension Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 HB 2365 is substantially similar to HB 6204, also proposed by Rep. Fortner, from the 97th GA. The Commission's actuary produced a cost estimate detailing the effects of the implementation of a Self-Managed Plan within the State Employees Retirement System and the effects of changing the employee contribution rates across all Systems. CGFA’s actuary assumed 10% of SERS’s members would opt-into the Self-Managed Plan and found that the State’s contribution would be reduced by $102 million, or 2.41% of payroll. Additionally, he found that the accrued liabilities for SERS would be reduced by $1.16 billion, the majority of which can be attributed to active members transferring into the Self-Managed Plan. A revised cost study would be required to determine the effect of implementing an identical Self-Managed Plan, as well as the adjusted employee contribution rates within GARS, SURS, TRS, and JRS. An additional cost study would also be required to determine the effect of shifting the long-term, actuarially-based funding schedule goal from 90% up to 100%.
