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.

305 ILCS 5/11-16

    (305 ILCS 5/11-16) (from Ch. 23, par. 11-16)
    Sec. 11-16. Changes in grants; cancellations, revocations, suspensions.
    (a) All grants of financial aid under this Code shall be considered as frequently as may be required by the rules of the Illinois Department. The Department of Healthcare and Family Services shall consider grants of financial aid to children who are eligible under Article V of this Code at least annually and shall take into account those reports filed, or required to be filed, pursuant to Sections 11-18 and 11-19. After such investigation as may be necessary, the amount and manner of giving aid may be changed or the aid may be entirely withdrawn if the County Department, local governmental unit, or Illinois Department finds that the recipient's circumstances have altered sufficiently to warrant such action. Financial aid may at any time be canceled or revoked for cause or suspended for such period as may be proper.
    (b) Whenever any such grant of financial aid is cancelled, revoked, reduced, or terminated because of the failure of the recipient to cooperate with the Department, including but not limited to the failure to keep an appointment, attend a meeting, or produce proof or verification of eligibility or need, the grant shall be reinstated in full, retroactive to the date of the change in or termination of the grant, provided that within 10 working days after the first day the financial aid would have been available, the recipient cooperates with the Department and is not otherwise ineligible for benefits for the period in question. This subsection (b) does not apply to sanctions imposed for the failure of any recipient to participate as required in the child support enforcement program or in any educational, training, or employment program under this Code or any other sanction under Section 4-21, nor does this subsection (b) apply to any cancellation, revocation, reduction, termination, or sanction imposed for the failure of any recipient to cooperate in the monthly reporting process or the quarterly reporting process.
