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 5/9-159

    (40 ILCS 5/9-159) (from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 9-159)
    Sec. 9-159. When disability benefit not payable.
    (a) If an employee receiving duty disability or ordinary disability benefit refuses to submit to examination by a physician appointed by the board, he shall have no further right to receive the benefit.
    (b) Disability benefit shall not be paid for any time for which the employee receives any part of his salary, or while employed by any public body supported in whole or in part by taxation.
    (c) If an employee who shall be disabled, or his widow or children receive any compensation or payment from the county for specific loss, disability or death under the Workers' Compensation Act or Workers' Occupational Diseases Act, the disability benefit or any annuity for him or his widow or children payable as the result of such specific loss, disability or death shall be reduced by any amount so received or recoverable. If the amount received as such compensation or payment exceeds such disability benefit or other annuity payable as the result of such specific loss, disability or death, no payment of disability benefit or other annuity shall be made until the accumulative amounts thereof equals the amount of such compensation or payment. In such calculation no interest shall be considered. In adjusting the amount of any annuity in relation to compensation received or recoverable during any period of time, the annuity to the widow shall be first reduced.
    If any employee, or widow shall be denied compensation by such county under the aforesaid Acts, or if such county shall fail to act, such denial or failure to act shall not be considered final until the claim has been adjudicated by the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission.
    (d) Before any action may be taken by the board on an application for duty disability benefit or widow's compensation or supplemental benefit, other than rejection of any such application that is otherwise incomplete or untimely, the related applicant must file a timely claim under the Workers' Compensation Act or the Workers' Occupational Diseases Act, as applicable, to establish that the disability or death resulted from an injury incurred in the performance of an act or acts of duty, and the applicant must receive compensation or payment from the claim or the claim must otherwise be finally adjudicated.
