Membership in both IRTA and NLSRTA are on a calendar year basis, but we begin collecting for the following year in July. IRTA dues are $35.00 for annual membership, $150.00 for five-year membership, or $400.00 for life membership. However, state dues may be deducted from TRS pensions at the rate of $2.00 per month.

Dues for NLSRTA cannot be deducted, and must be paid directly to the unit. Annual dues are $12.00, two-year dues are $20.00 and life dues are $150.00.

Membership dues may be sent to Irene Jinks, 834 Carolyn Lane, Park Ridge, IL 60068.
