Synopsis As Introduced Amends the Downstate Police Article of the Illinois Pension Code. Provides that if a person who is receiving a police pension becomes employed as a chief of police, the person must so notify the pension fund paying the pension and any other fund in which the person has service credit, and the pension shall be suspended until the employment as chief terminates; if the person elects to participate in IMRF, the person must also notify IMRF of those police pension funds. Provides that if a person who is receiving a police pension enters service as a police officer with a different municipality, the person must so notify the pension fund paying the pension, and the pension shall be suspended until the service terminates. Applies to persons who first enter service after the effective date of this amendatory Act.
House Floor Amendment No. 1 Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the bill as introduced, plus the following change: Provides that notwithstanding the other amendatory provisions, if a person is receiving pension payments under the Article and enters active service as a police officer under the Article with a different municipality, he or she is not subject to the added notification requirements and is not subject to suspension of pension payments while in that active service, if that different municipality had a population of less than 6,000 at the time of the return to active service, as determined from the best available census data.
