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.

755 ILCS 65/15

    (755 ILCS 65/15)
    Sec. 15. Requirements for written instrument under paragraph (1) of Section 5 of this Act. A written instrument is legally sufficient under paragraph (1) of Section 5 if the wording of the instrument complies substantially with Section 10, the instrument is properly completed, the instrument is signed by the decedent and the agent and the signature of the decedent is notarized. The agent may sign at any time, but the agent's authority to act is not effective until the agent signs the instrument. The written instrument may be modified or revoked only by a subsequent written instrument that complies with this Section.
