We updated our pension database with fresh info, but we need your help!

Better Government Association Illinois Public Pension database pension distribution graph

As a past user, you can be the first to explore the Better Government Association’s updated Illinois Public Pensions Database before we reveal it to the world.

We just added 2020 data on pension payouts to individuals and updated the status of funding levels for Illinois, Cook County, Chicago and some downstate pension funds.

Now we need your help.

Please dive into the database, look around, view the data on how well or poorly pensions are funded or look up the pension benefits individuals receive. Then let us know what you think. Do you like it? Are you confused by something?

Last year we revamped the site and now we are building on that work to add more data and more analysis, but we need more eyes on it before making it public to everyone. We are counting on your feedback!

If you have a comment or see something you want to tell us about, please email our data coordinator, Jared Rutecki, at jrutecki@bettergov.org.

Thank you!
