July 3, 2014 Supreme Court Ruling on Health Insurance Benefits

On July 3, 2014, the Illinois Supreme Court decided appeals in a group of cases with the heading Kanerva et al. v. Weems et al. This decision was not a decision on the pending case involving the CTA Retirement Plan and Retiree Health Care Trust, which is entitled Matthews et al. v. Retirement Plan for Chicago Transit Employees et al.

In the Matthews case, all of the parties have asked the Supreme Court of Illinois to change some aspect of the opinion of the Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court has not yet decided whether to hear these appeals.

There is currently no ruling that requires the CTA Retirement Plan or Retiree Health Care Trust to make any changes to the current health care benefits of CTA retirees.
