Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the State Universities and Downstate Teacher Articles of the Illinois Pension Code. Provides that, for academic years beginning on or after July 1, 2013, if the amount of a participant's earnings for any academic year used to determine the final rate of earnings, determined on a full-time equivalent basis, exceeds the amount of his or her earnings with the same employer for the previous academic year, determined on a full-time equivalent basis, by more than the unadjusted percentage increase in the consumer price index-u for that year (rather than 6%), then the participant's employer shall pay to the applicable System, in addition to all other payments required and in accordance with guidelines established by that System, the present value of the increase in benefits resulting from the portion of the increase in earnings that is in excess of the unadjusted percentage increase in the consumer price index-u for that year (rather than the present value of the increase in benefits resulting from the portion of the increase in earnings that is in excess of 6%). Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement. Effective immediately.

 Pension Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 The amount of school district payments to TRS and SURS as a result of HB 3265 is not known as the amount of future salary increases is unknown. However, the Commissionís actuary has estimated that an additional revenue stream equal to 1% of payroll will produce a reduced State contribution for TRS in the amount of $3.0 billion between FY 2014 and FY 2045. For SURS, an additional revenue stream equal to 1% of payroll will produce a reduced State contribution of approximately $700 million between FY 2014 and FY 2045. These savings estimates could vary widely depending on actual experience under HB 3265.
