These meetings will review the impact of year-end financial and actuarial data on IMRF, and the data's estimated impact on individual employers. IMRF encourages you, your chief financial officer, other officials, governing body members, and interested parties from your employer to attend the meeting scheduled in your area (view the full schedule).

Advance registration is requested for the Employer Rate Meetings. You can register online through IMRF Employer Access. If you do not have an Employer Access account, return a completed registration form to IMRF by mail, fax, or email.
