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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

Automatic enrollment for certain employees.
The Department of Central Management Services shall automatically enroll in the State Employees Deferred Compensation Plan any employee who, on or after July 1, 2020, becomes an active member or participant of a retirement system created under Article 2, 14, or 18. Any agency with employees subject to automatic enrollment must systematically provide the employee data necessary for enrollment to the Department of Central Management Services or its designee. An employee automatically enrolled under this Section shall have 3% of his or her pre-tax gross compensation for each compensation period deferred into his or her deferred compensation account. The Board may increase the default percentage amount of compensation deferred into employee accounts.
An employee shall have 30 days from the start date of employment to elect to not participate in the deferred compensation plan or to elect to increase or reduce the amount of pre-tax gross compensation deferred. An employee shall be automatically enrolled in the Plan beginning the first day of the pay period following the employee's thirtieth day of employment. An employee who has been automatically enrolled in the Plan may elect, within 90 days of enrollment, to withdraw from the Plan and receive a refund of amounts deferred, plus or minus any applicable earnings, investment fees, and administrative fees. An employee making such an election shall forfeit all employer matching contributions, if any, made prior to the election. Any refunded amount shall be included in the employee's gross income for the taxable year in which the refund is issued.
As soon as practicable, the Board shall establish annual, automatic increases to employee contribution rates for employees who are automatically enrolled in the Plan pursuant to this Section. The amount of automatic annual increases in any 12-month period shall not exceed 1% of compensation. Employees may elect to not receive automatic annual increases in a manner described by the Board.
