An Inactive member is an individual who has contributions in the LABF but no longer works for the City, the Board of Education or a Retirement Board of the City of Chicago. An inactive member may work for a reciprocal fund and may, upon retirement, combine LABF service with service from their current reciprocal employer.
Currently, the LABF holds contributions from Inactive Members who have never filed for pension benefits or a refund of contributions. We are trying to find these members. Click here to review the Unclaimed Contributions List to see if you, or someone you know, may be owed a refund of contributions or a benefit.
Also, the heir(s) of deceased members may be entitled to a refund of contributions or a benefit. If you know the heir(s) of a deceased member whose name appears on the Unclaimed Contributions List
, please refer them to the LABF.
