Welcome to MEABF.org
MEABF is a defined benefit, single employer benefit plan that was established in 1921 by
an act of the Illinois General Assembly to provide disability and retirement benefits to
qualified employees of the City of Chicago and the Chicago Board of Education. Our sole
purpose is to pay earned benefits to our members, which is funded by a combination of
member contributions, taxes levied by the City of Chicago, and investment earnings from
Plan reserves. MEABF is a component unit of the City of Chicago, and as such, is
included in the City of Chicago's financial statements as a pension trust fund.
We take care of the people who take care of Chicago.
