RTA Pension Committee and Board of Trustees

The RTA Pension Plan covers all RTA employees, as well as non-represented employees of Metra and Pace. The pension’s day-to-day activities are governed by two separate entities: the Pension Committee and the RTA Pension Board of Trustees. The Pension Committee is responsible for approving outgoing funds and for interpreting the Plan, while the Trustees are charged with investing Plan funds. The RTA Board approves membership and chair of both the Pension Plan Administrative Committee and the Pension Plan Board of Trustees.

Each group's meetings are subject to the Open Meetings Act and materials will be posted on this page in advance. The annual financial statement and actuarial valuation of the Plan can already be found on the Financial Documents page.

RTA Pension Plan Administrative Committee

The Committee is responsible for the operation of the Plan, including reviewing and making recommendations regarding benefit changes, decisions related to the operation of the Plan, hiring of actuaries, attorneys, and other professionals not related to the investment of Plan assets.
