IRTA Political Action Committee Message

by Sharon Teefey, PAC Committee Chair

As the days grow a bit shorter and the school buses once again are on the move, let’s take a moment and think about our well earned retirement benefits and the support needed to ensure elected officials, making decisions in Springfield, understand that fundamental promises made need to be kept. 

The Illinois Retired Teacher Association Political Action Committee (IRTAPAC) is our voice at the Capitol.  Contributions to IRTAPAC are used to enhance political awareness of IRTA members and support elected officials and candidates who support retired educators. 

IRTA members who donate $1.00 a month through pension deduction provide a stronger voice protecting issues IRTA members care about – pensions and healthcare.  Your contribution sends a powerful message to policymakers that the retired educator community is united, active, and watching.   If you have not already done so, please visit the IRTA website at and fill out the IRTAPAC donation form online or contact the IRTA office by phone at 1-800-728-4782.  

Sign up today and do your part in protecting the retirement benefits we deserve and earned.  Thank you.  Enjoy the remaining days of summer.
