Eastern Illinois University’s status employees pay into the State University Retirement System (or SURS) rather than paying Social Security taxes.  There are options regarding retirement savings plans within SURS. 

In addition, there are options for supplemental retirement savings which are tax-deferred.  For more information regarding the options EIU offers for retirement savings, please visit Benefits retirement.
