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.

    (215 ILCS 5/299.1a) (from Ch. 73, par. 911.1a)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2027)
    Sec. 299.1a. Benefits not attachable.
    (a) No money or other charity, relief or aid to be paid, provided or rendered by any society shall be liable to attachment, garnishment or other process or to be seized, taken, appropriated or applied by any legal or equitable process or operation of law to pay any debt or liability of a member or beneficiary, or any other person who may have a right thereunder, either before or after payment by the society.
    (b) Any benefit association doing business in this State and governed by this Article XVII shall encumber or surrender accounts as defined in Section 10-24 of the Illinois Public Aid Code held by the benefit association owned by any responsible relative who is subject to a child support lien, upon notice of the lien or levy by the Department of Healthcare and Family Services (formerly Illinois Department of Public Aid) or its successor agency pursuant to Section 10-25.5 of the Illinois Public Aid Code, or upon notice of interstate lien from any other state's agency responsible for implementing the child support enforcement program set forth in Title IV, Part D of the Social Security Act.
    This Section shall not prohibit the furnishing of information in accordance with the federal Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996. Any benefit association governed by this Article XVII shall enter into an agreement for data exchanges with the Department of Healthcare and Family Services provided the Department of Healthcare and Family Services pays to the benefit association a reasonable fee not to exceed its actual cost incurred. A benefit association providing information in accordance with this item shall not be liable to any account holder or other person for any disclosure of information to a State agency, for encumbering or surrendering any accounts as defined in Section 10-24 of the Illinois Public Aid Code held by the benefit association in response to a lien or order to withhold and deliver issued by a State agency, or for any other action taken pursuant to this item, including individual or mechanical errors, provided the action does not constitute gross negligence or willful misconduct. A benefit association shall have no obligation to hold, encumber, or surrender accounts until it has been served with a subpoena, summons, warrant, court or administrative order, lien, or levy requiring that action.
