Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Chicago Police Article of the Illinois Pension Code. Provides that a policeman who assumes regular employment for compensation, while in receipt of disability benefits, shall not be entitled to receive any amount of such disability benefits which, when added to his compensation for such employment during disability, would exceed 125% of the rate of salary which would be paid to him if he were working in his regularly appointed civil service position as a policeman. Provides that the reduction in disability benefits due to compensation for employment shall apply to all persons in receipt of disability benefits on or after the effective date of the amendatory Act. Makes a conforming change. Provides that a policeman who is granted a disability benefit shall supply the fund with a copy of his federal and state tax returns, along with all accompanying schedules, within 30 days after filing those returns and that the refusal to provide those tax returns terminates the right to a disability benefit. Provides that a policeman has an affirmative obligation to inform the fund if he has received a medical opinion that he is no longer disabled. Provides that when the disability ceases, the policeman shall have no further right to receive the benefit and he shall be returned to active service.
