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 5/7-145

    (40 ILCS 5/7-145) (from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 7-145)
    Sec. 7-145. Reversionary annuities.
    (a) An employee entitled to a retirement annuity may elect to provide a reversionary annuity for a beneficiary if:
        1. Under the provisions of paragraph (a) 1 of Section
7-142 he is entitled to an immediate annuity of at least $10 per month; and
        2. His accumulated additional and optional credits
are sufficient to provide a reversionary annuity, of at least $10 per month, for the beneficiary.
    (b) An election shall become effective only:
        1. If a written notice thereof by the employee is
received by the board; and
        2. If the amount of the beneficiary's reversionary
annuity specified in the notice is not less than $10 nor more than that which can be provided, at the time of election, by the accumulation of additional and optional credits.
    (c) The amount of the reversionary annuity shall be that specified in the notice of election.
    (d) Reversionary annuity shall begin the first day of the month following the month in which the last payment of the employee annuity is payable because of death, provided the beneficiary is alive at such time. If the beneficiary does not survive the annuitant, no reversionary annuity shall be payable, but only the death benefit as provided in Sections 7-163 and 7-164.
    (e) Any election made under this Section shall be irrevocable by the employee.
