How to Obtain
an Individualized Economic Impact Letter for your Illinois Legislators
(See a sample letter-click here.)
Go to the bottom of the CTPF Legislative Action Center page (here) and enter either
your address including zip code
or just enter your ten digit zip code and the program will tell you the
name of your state representative and state
senator. After you have their name(s), go back to the Legislative Action Center page and scroll down to "Pensions Matter - Economic Impact
by Legislators" then click on either the Senatorial letter or the
Representative letter. Finally, click on your
legislator(s). This will produce a one page "Pension
Fundamentals" that is addressed
to your particular representative or senator. It includes the number of active CTPF members and the number of retirees in
his/her district. It also lists the economic impact on that particular
district. You should print these and either bring them
to the representative or
senator or mail them with a personal note. Both their local and Springfield office addresses and phone numbers are listed on the printout.
