Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

40 ILCS 5/14-114

    (40 ILCS 5/14-114) (from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 14-114)
    (Text of Section WITH the changes made by P.A. 98-599, which has been held unconstitutional)
    Sec. 14-114. Automatic increase in retirement annuity.
    (a) This subsection (a) is subject to subsections (a-1) and (a-2) of this Section. Any person receiving a retirement annuity under this Article who retires having attained age 60, or who retires before age 60 having at least 35 years of creditable service, or who retires on or after January 1, 2001 at an age which, when added to the number of years of his or her creditable service, equals at least 85, shall, on January 1 next following the first full year of retirement, have the amount of the then fixed and payable monthly retirement annuity increased 3%. Any person receiving a retirement annuity under this Article who retires before attainment of age 60 and with less than (i) 35 years of creditable service if retirement is before January 1, 2001, or (ii) the number of years of creditable service which, when added to the member's age, would equal 85, if retirement is on or after January 1, 2001, shall have the amount of the fixed and payable retirement annuity increased by 3% on the January 1 occurring on or next following (1) attainment of age 60, or (2) the first anniversary of retirement, whichever occurs later. However, for persons who receive the alternative retirement annuity under Section 14-110, references in this subsection (a) to attainment of age 60 shall be deemed to refer to attainment of age 55. For a person receiving early retirement incentives under Section 14-108.3 whose retirement annuity began after January 1, 1992 pursuant to an extension granted under subsection (e) of that Section, the first anniversary of retirement shall be deemed to be January 1, 1993. For a person who retires on or after June 28, 2001 and on or before October 1, 2001, and whose retirement annuity is calculated, in whole or in part, under Section 14-110 or subsection (g) or (h) of Section 14-108, the first anniversary of retirement shall be deemed to be January 1, 2002.
    On each January 1 following the date of the initial increase under this subsection, the employee's monthly retirement annuity shall be increased by an additional 3%.
    Beginning January 1, 1990, all automatic annual increases payable under this Section shall be calculated as a percentage of the total annuity payable at the time of the increase, including previous increases granted under this Article.
    (a-1) Notwithstanding subsection (a), but subject to the provisions of subsection (a-2), all automatic increases payable under subsection (a) on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 98th General Assembly shall be calculated as 3% of the lesser of (1) the total annuity payable at the time of the increase, including previous increases granted, or (2) $800 ($1,000 for portions of the annuity based on service as a noncovered employee) multiplied by the number of years of creditable service upon which the annuity is based.
    Beginning January 1, 2016, the $800 ($1,000 for portions of the annuity based on service as a noncovered employee) referred in item (2) of this subsection (a-1) shall be increased on each January 1 by the annual unadjusted percentage increase (but not less than zero) in the consumer price index-u for the 12 months ending with the preceding September; these adjustments shall be cumulative and compounded. For the purposes of this subsection (a-1), "consumer price index-u" means the index published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the United States Department of Labor that measures the average change in prices of goods and services purchased by all urban consumers, United States city average, all items, 1982-84 = 100. The new dollar amount resulting from each annual adjustment shall be determined by the Public Pension Division of the Department of Insurance and made available to the System by November 1 of each year.
    This subsection (a-1) is applicable without regard to whether the person is in service on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 98th General Assembly.
    (a-2) Notwithstanding subsections (a) and (a-1), for an active or inactive Tier 1 member who has not begun to receive a retirement annuity under this Article before July 1, 2014:
        (1) the second automatic annual increase payable
    
under subsection (a) shall be at the rate of 0% of the total annuity payable at the time of the increase if he or she is at least age 50 on the effective date of this amendatory Act;
        (2) the second, fourth, and sixth automatic annual
    
increases payable under subsection (a) shall be at the rate of 0% of the total annuity payable at the time of the increase if he or she is at least age 47 but less than age 50 on the effective date of this amendatory Act;
        (3) the second, fourth, sixth, and eighth automatic
    
annual increases payable under subsection (a) shall be at the rate of 0% of the total annuity payable at the time of the increase if he or she is at least age 44 but less than age 47 on the effective date of this amendatory Act; and
        (4) the second, fourth, sixth, eighth, and tenth
    
automatic annual increases payable under subsection (a) shall be at the rate of 0% of the total annuity payable at the time of the increase if he or she is less than age 44 on the effective date of this amendatory Act.
    For the purposes of Section 1-103.1, this subsection (a-2) is applicable without regard to whether the person is in service on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 98th General Assembly.
    (b) The provisions of subsection (a) of this Section shall be applicable to an employee only if the employee makes the additional contributions required after December 31, 1969 for the purpose of the automatic increases for not less than the equivalent of one full year. If an employee becomes an annuitant before his additional contributions equal one full year's contributions based on his salary at the date of retirement, the employee may pay the necessary balance of the contributions to the system, without interest, and be eligible for the increasing annuity authorized by this Section.
    (c) The provisions of subsection (a) of this Section shall not be applicable to any annuitant who is on retirement on December 31, 1969, and thereafter returns to State service, unless the member has established at least one year of additional creditable service following reentry into service.
    (d) In addition to other increases which may be provided by this Section, on January 1, 1981 any annuitant who was receiving a retirement annuity on or before January 1, 1971 shall have his retirement annuity then being paid increased $1 per month for each year of creditable service. On January 1, 1982, any annuitant who began receiving a retirement annuity on or before January 1, 1977, shall have his retirement annuity then being paid increased $1 per month for each year of creditable service.
    On January 1, 1987, any annuitant who began receiving a retirement annuity on or before January 1, 1977, shall have the monthly retirement annuity increased by an amount equal to 8 per year of creditable service times the number of years that have elapsed since the annuity began.
    (e) Every person who receives the alternative retirement annuity under Section 14-110 and who is eligible to receive the 3% increase under subsection (a) on January 1, 1986, shall also receive on that date a one-time increase in retirement annuity equal to the difference between (1) his actual retirement annuity on that date, including any increases received under subsection (a), and (2) the amount of retirement annuity he would have received on that date if the amendments to subsection (a) made by Public Act 84-162 had been in effect since the date of his retirement.
