Pension Administrator Training - Cancelled for 2020

The Pension Administrator Certification (PAC) Program is designed for those individuals in local government who are responsible for daily tasks related to the management of the 600+ Police and Fire Pension plans in the State of Illinois. Such tasks include payroll setup, benefit program setup, and benefit processing and reporting. Any individual who is responsible for such tasks, regardless of job title, shall be eligible to pursue the certification.

The Pension Administrator Certification is a stand alone program offered by the Illinois Municipal Treasurers Association (IMTA). It is not directly affiliated with the Certified Illinois Municipal Treasurer (CIMT) program offered by the IMTA to those with traditional treasurer/finance positions. As a result, the Association for Public Treasurers (APT) has not been consulted on this potential program.
