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 5/15-120

    (40 ILCS 5/15-120) (from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 15-120)
    Sec. 15-120. Beneficiary; survivor annuitant under portable benefit package. "Beneficiary": The person or persons designated by the participant or annuitant in the last written designation on file with the board; or if no person so designated survives, or if no designation is on file, the estate of the participant or annuitant. Acceptance by the participant of a refund of accumulated contributions or an accelerated pension benefit payment under Section 15-185.5 shall result in cancellation of all beneficiary designations previously filed. A spouse whose marriage was dissolved shall be disqualified as beneficiary unless the spouse was designated as beneficiary after the effective date of the dissolution of marriage.
    After a joint and survivor annuity commences under the portable benefit package, the survivor annuitant of a joint and survivor annuity is not disqualified, and may not be removed, as the survivor annuitant by a dissolution of the survivor's marriage with the participant or annuitant.
