Retired educators do pay premiums, anywhere between $42 and $793 for their coverage, so they are participating, said James Bachman, IRTA spokesman. Part of TRIP is also that school districts and active teachers pay in. The states portion of TRIP funding is about 24 percent of the approximately $451 million program. The appropriations bill signed by Rauner last year to fund primary and secondary education included TRIP coverage, Bachman said.

Bachman said the governors action to cut insurance for retired teachers conflicts with his contention that K-12 education is the most important state expense. I think its the total opposite, Bachman said.

He pointed out in addition, the state gave up their idea of appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court. He reiterated that teachers pensions are secure for now.
