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.

410 ILCS 535/11

    (410 ILCS 535/11) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 73-11)
    Sec. 11. Information required on forms.
    (a) The form of certificates, reports, and other returns required by this Act or by regulations adopted under this Act shall include as a minimum the items recommended by the federal agency responsible for national vital statistics, subject to approval of and modification by the Department. All forms shall be prescribed and furnished by the State Registrar of Vital Records.
    (b) On and after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1983, all forms used to collect information under this Act which request information concerning the race or ethnicity of an individual by providing spaces for the designation of that individual as "white" or "black", or the semantic equivalent thereof, shall provide an additional space for a designation as "Hispanic".
    (c) Effective November 1, 1990, the social security numbers of the mother and father shall be collected at the time of the birth of the child. These numbers shall not be recorded on the certificate of live birth. The numbers may be used only for those purposes allowed by Federal law.
    (d) The social security number of a person who has died shall be entered on the death certificate; however, failure to enter the social security number of the person who has died on the death certificate does not invalidate the death certificate.
    (e) If the place of disposition of a dead human body or cremated remains is in a cemetery, the burial permit shall include the place of disposition. The place of disposition shall include the lot, block, section, and plot or niche, and depth, if applicable, where the dead human body or cremated remains are located. This subsection does not apply to cremated remains scattered in a cemetery.
    (f) The death certificate for an individual with a history of military service may include or may be amended to include the deceased individual's veteran status, the branch of the military that he or she served in, and the period of time that he or she served in the military.
