Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Pension Code. Deletes references to the State Universities Retirement System from the Tier 2 Section of the General Provisions Article and incorporates the Tier 2 provisions into the State Universities Article. Also makes administrative changes: authorizes the Board to delegate some of its duties; provides that warrants, checks, and drafts need not be signed by the president of the Board; specifies that the Board's rulemaking power includes the time and manner of reporting contributions; authorizes the Board to procure additional actuarial, legal, medical, audit, and other services; makes other changes. Effective immediately.

 Pension Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 To the extent that HB 2993 provides for a clearer interpretation of the Tier 2 provisions of SB 1946 (96th G.A.) as they apply to SURS, the bill should have no discernible fiscal impact.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:
40 ILCS 5/15-163
Adds reference to:
40 ILCS 5/15-169from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 15-169

40 ILCS 5/16-152from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 16-152

In the State Universities Article of the Illinois Pension Code, provides that a Tier 2 member seeking an annuity calculated under Rule 4 must meet certain age requirements as well as the Rule 4 service requirements. Deletes a provision authorizing the Board to delegate its duties to employees of the System. Also deletes a reference to the Board employing actuarial, legal, and medical services. Amends the Downstate Teacher Article of the Illinois Pension Code. Provides that a teacher shall be deemed to be certificated if he or she is required to be licensed by the Illinois State Board of Education. Provides that, if the early retirement without discount option is terminated under specified circumstances, then the System shall provide to the member, within 120 days after the option is terminated, an application for a refund of the contributions made for that purpose (rather than providing the refund itself within 120 days). Effective immediately.
