IMRF disability benefits are a “salary protection plan” established by state statute
and administered under a Board of Trustees. The employer funds the entire cost. IMRF
provides two types of disability benefits:
A 30-day waiting period applies to all disabilities unless it is a re-occurrence of
a previous disabling condition. Temporary benefits are payable for a maximum of 30
months. Receipt of total and permanent disability benefits is available only after
temporary disability benefits are exhausted.
The IMRF had a reverse offset provision in effect prior to 02/18/1981. Receipt of
disability benefits from the IMRF will not cause offset of DIB. Code the case with offset type “REV JURISDICTION” (RJ) per DI 52105.001E.3.
