Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the General Assembly Article of the Illinois Pension Code. Provides that upon a participant being charged with any felony relating to or arising out of or in connection with his or her service as a member, the participant's active participation in this System is suspended, and no additional contributions shall be accepted from that person or service credits granted to that person by the System during that suspension. Directs that any such contribution inadvertently accepted by the System during the period of suspension shall be promptly refunded. Provides that if the charge is dropped or the person so charged is found not guilty or otherwise not convicted of the felony, his or her rights to active participation in the System and to make contributions and establish service credit under the System shall thereupon be restored, retroactive to the beginning of the suspension. Provides that none of the benefits under the System shall be paid to any person who is found guilty (rather than convicted) of any felony relating to or arising out of or in connection with his or her service as a member. Provides that if such a person is later not convicted of the felony or his or her conviction is reversed, then his or her rights to benefits under this System shall be restored, including interest on any benefit payment that was delayed under the Section. Effective immediately.
