Open Enrollment - May 2024

The month of May is Pekin 108's open enrollment month. Employees are able to make changes to insurance coverage, enroll in our flexible spending plan or other benefits, or terminate coverage during this time. At other times throughout the year, employees may make changes with a qualifying life event. All applicable forms and the related information is available through this page.

IMRF Voluntary Additional Contribution Program

This program allows for IMRF contributors to put aside funds to be used for retirement or other purposes.  Funds are deducted through payroll after taxes and then held by IMRF.  Interest is credited to your account only once a year; however, funds put into this program are currently being paid interest at 7.25% (effective 1/1/2019).  You can elect to contribute up to 10% of your earnings. This is not to be seen as a short-term savings account as you can withdraw your contributions, but you must apply for a refund of all of your contributions when you do.  These funds can be applied to your monthly retirement annuity if your balance in the VAC program at the time of retirement is at least $4,500. You can enroll in the program or make changes to your contributions through your online IMRF account at
