    The most frequently asked question is pension portability. Pension portability is ONLY available within Article 3 Pension Funds. The Chicago Police Department, The Illinois State Police, and County Sheriff Department’s, would be unable to transfer their pension. Most other suburban Illinois police officers contribute to an Article 3 pension fund. If you first began to contribute to the Article 3 pension fund prior to January 1, 2011, you would remain in Tier 1. If you began to contribute after January 1, 2011, you would be in Tier 2. You may choose to have your pension contributions and a portion of your current departments transferred to the Bolingbrook Police Pension Fund. If you have any further questions, I can provide contact information for the Bolingbrook Police Pension Board.
