AN ACT concerning public employee benefits.
Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois,
represented in the General Assembly:
The Illinois Pension Code is amended by adding
Section 15-155.1 as follows:
(40 ILCS 5/15-155.1 new)
Actions to enforce payments by employers.
(a) Except as otherwise specified, if any employer fails to
transmit to the System contributions required of it under this
Article or contributions collected by it from its participating
employees for the purposes of this Article for more than 120
days after the payment of those contributions is due, the
Board, after giving notice to that employer, may certify to the
State Comptroller the amounts of such delinquent payments in
accordance with any applicable rules of the Comptroller, and
the Comptroller shall deduct the amounts so certified or any
part thereof from any payments of State funds to the employer
involved and shall remit the amount so deducted to the System.
If State funds from which such deductions may be made are not
available or if deductions are delayed for longer than 120 days
after the date of the certification to the Comptroller, the
Board may proceed against the employer to recover the amounts
of such delinquent payments in the appropriate circuit court.
