The General Employees’ Retirement Plan was established by the Aurora City Council in 1967 for the exclusive benefit of participating City employees and their beneficiaries. Effective June 30, 2003, GERP’s administrative staff members are also eligible to participate in the Plan.
Plan provisions are found in sections 102-136 through 102-152 of the City of Aurora Municipal Code. Responsibility for the administration and proper operation of the Plan is delegated to the ten trustees who comprise the General Employees’ Retirement Board. Board members serve without compensation, except for reimbursement for any necessary expenses incurred in the performance of their authorized duties.
