Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Chicago Police Article of the Illinois Pension Code. Makes changes to provisions concerning credit for service while on a leave of absence from the police department and assigned or detailed to perform safety or investigative work. Provides that the changes made by the amendatory Act requiring an applicant to have been on a leave of absence from the police department of the city while assigned or detailed to perform investigative work for the department while employed as a civilian employee of the police department of the city are operative beginning January 1, 2021. Defines "investigative work". Provides that the board shall reconsider any application for credit for service for any active policeman assigned or detailed to perform safety or investigative work as an employee for the County of Cook (instead of an application for credit under the provisions), if the application was submitted between specified dates and was denied. Provides that no credit shall be granted for certain service while on a leave of absence or as a temporary police officer if the policeman has not, within 5 years after the date his application for credit has been approved, but prior to his date of retirement, made a specified contribution. Provides that it is the sole responsibility of the policeman to ensure that all sums contributed by the policeman have been received by the fund for the service credit for which the policeman has applied. Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that the board may (rather than shall) reconsider any application for credit for service for any active policeman assigned or detailed to perform safety or investigative work as an employee for the County of Cook.

Provides that the changes made by the amendatory Act requiring an applicant to have been on a leave of absence from the police department of the city while assigned or detailed to perform investigative work for the department while employed as a civilian employee of the police department of the city are operative beginning January 1, 2023 (instead of January 1, 2021).
