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 5/8A-18

    (305 ILCS 5/8A-18)
    Sec. 8A-18. Application assistance fraud; SNAP; AABD; TANF. It is a Class C misdemeanor for any person, including an individual, firm, corporation, association, partnership, or joint venture, or any employee or agent of any of those, to assist or represent another person in completing or submitting an application for benefits under the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the State's Aid to the Aged, Blind, or Disabled (AABD) program, or the State's Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program, in exchange for a portion of the applicant's SNAP, AABD, or TANF benefits or cash or any other form of payment from any other source. An applicant who receives such assistance or representation is not in violation of this Section. Nothing in this Section shall be construed as prohibiting an applicant from receiving such assistance or representation when appealing a denial of an application for SNAP, AABD, or TANF benefits.
