Where to send
QILDROs and Calculation Orders should be sent to:
Teachers’ Retirement System
of the State of Illinois
Attn: Office of Legal Counsel
2815 West Washington Street
P.O. Box 19253
Springfield, IL 62794-9253
What to send
- Certified copy of QILDRO or Calculation Order
- $50 check payable to Teachers’ Retirement System for each court order ($100 if QILDRO and Calculation Order are submitted together)
- Completed Consent to Issuance of QILDRO (pre- 07/01/1999 service)
- Completed Notice of Confidential Information within Court Filing (unless full SSNs are shown on court order)
Other documents such as judgment of dissolution or settlement are not needed or reviewed and should not be sent to TRS.
Each court order submitted to TRS requires an accompanying $50 non-refundable processing fee, by check payable to the Teachers’ Retirement System. A new $50 fee is required with each new or amended court order (separate fees for each QILDRO and Calculation Order) submitted to TRS. If a QILDRO and Calculation Order are submitted together, the required processing fee is $100. The QILDRO or Calculation Order is invalid until the fee is received.
Certified copy required
Remember to send TRS a certified copy of the court order. A certified copy bears the clerk of court’s seal or stamp certifying the document as a true and correct copy of the original document. A faxed, emailed, plain, or file-stamped copy will be rejected.
Notice from TRS
The member, alternate payee, and attorney(s) of whom TRS is aware receive a notice within 45 days after TRS received the order indicating whether the order is valid and other pertinent information. If invalid, the notice specifies the reasons.
No QILDRO or Calculation Order is valid until all deficiencies have been corrected.
