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 5/4-1.2a

    (305 ILCS 5/4-1.2a) (from Ch. 23, par. 4-1.2a)
    Sec. 4-1.2a. Residents of public institutions. Residents of municipal, county, state or national institutions for persons with mental illness or persons with a developmental disability or for the tuberculous, or residents of a home or other institution maintained by such governmental bodies when not in need of institutional care because of sickness, convalescence, infirmity, or chronic illness, and inmates of penal or correctional institutions maintained by such governmental bodies, may qualify for aid under this Article only after they have ceased to be residents or inmates.
    A person shall not be deemed a resident of a State institution for persons with mental illness or persons with a developmental disability within the meaning of this Section if he or she has been conditionally discharged by the Department of Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities or the Department of Human Services (acting as successor to the Department of Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities) and is no longer residing in the institution.
    Recipients of benefits under this Article who become residents of such institutions shall be permitted a period of up to 30 days in such institutions without suspension or termination of eligibility. Benefits for which such person is eligible shall be restored, effective on the date of discharge or release, for persons who are residents of institutions. Within a reasonable time after the discharge of a person who was a resident of an institution, the Department shall redetermine the eligibility of such person.
    The Department shall provide for procedures to expedite the determination of incapacity or ability to engage in employment of persons scheduled to be discharged from facilities operated by the Department.
