The Chicago Teachers’ Pension Fund (CTPF) is committed to serving our members. Our pension fund serves more than 88,000 members and administers benefits totaling nearly $1.5 billion annually.
We provide for the financial security of a group of dedicated individuals who serve, or have served, the Chicago Public Schools/Charter Schools through a career in public service as teachers, principals and administrators. For more than 120 years, CTPF has protected the retirement and health of our members by working to continuously improve and safeguard their benefits. As the State of Illinois’ oldest public pension fund, we ensure that our members’ benefits and earned retirements are as enduring as the mark they have left on thousands of young lives throughout their careers.
Expert investing is the technical side of caring and we invest wisely locally, nationally, and globally — building portfolios and funding enterprises that support Minority, Women, and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (MWDBE) firms. Coupled with an unwavering commitment to retirement security and wellness, we help create equity in the future for generations to come.
The Chicago Teachers’ Pension Fund (CTPF) is celebrating its quasquicentennial (125th anniversary) in 2020 with special events and more. Plans are underway to commemorate how CTPF has helped to shape the lives of Chicago Public School teachers and recognize the dedication of our members to their students and profession. There are a number of ways to get involved with the celebration or just follow along on-line.
