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.

The main speaker for the meeting was Jim Bachman, executive director of IRTA. He began by pointing out this is a great year because we are celebrating 60 years representing the retired teachers in Illinois, and for teachers pensions because the Illinois State Supreme Court rendered a decision in favor of teachers against pension reforms the state legislature tried to make into law. 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. As far as the pensions go, the state legislature will not be discussing that soon, he said. He went on to say what the legislature needs to do now is figure how to budget for more revenues even though retirees pensions and current teachers pensions are secure. Although Bachman is not a fan of Gov. Bachman encouraged everyone to attend the October BCRTA meeting and tell state representatives how they feel about the states financial situation. He doesnt expect anything to be done until next March. Even if they could decide the budget tomorrow, money wouldnt be available until Jan. 1 due to delays. He said he felt bad he had to end on such a sad note, so he repeated that 2015 has been a great year for retired teachers, adding educators should be happy the Illinois Supreme Court ruled in educators favor.
