Why should I join Illinois Professional Firefighters Association?
I.P.F.A. is a non-for-profit organization that is independent of any specific labor labor organization.
I.P.F.A. is a strong voice for firefighter's pension benefits in Springfield.
Pension benefits are determined by Illinois State Statute and are not negotiable under collective bargained contracts.

What has I.P.F.A. done lately?
The IPFA was very instrumental in getting legislation passed for increasing annual pension benefits from 2% to 2 1/2% per year for
each year worked over 20 years and increasing the maximum benefit from 70% to 75% after 30 years.

What if I have a specific question about my pension benefits?
Members have options. You can e-mail your question to ipfa@aol.com, you can call the
IPFA office at 630-833-2405, or you can fax your question to
630-833-2412. There is a vast wealth of knowledge and experience among the IPFA Board of Directors and its members.

Is there any benefit if our whole department joins IPFA?
Yes, there is a group dues discount program. Any department with 5 or more full-time
employees is eligible to take advantage of IPFA's Group Dues Billing Program.
This program provides a 10% dues discount to the departments that participate.
Contact the IPFA office for more information.
