Warning! Many SRS members have recently received unsolicited, potentially misleading emails from companies not affiliated with SRS offering retirement counseling. These emails may appear to come from SRS or appear to represent SRS, they do not. SRS encourages members to be cautious of email solicitations and skeptical of any attempts by outside firms to request personal or financial information. SRS will NEVER contact you asking for personal information. If you are within a year of retirement and need an appointment, you can request an appointment by emailing or by calling (217) 785-7444.
