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.

    (20 ILCS 2805/2.05) (from Ch. 126 1/2, par. 67.05)
    Sec. 2.05. When any veteran is a resident or becomes a resident of the Illinois Veterans Homes at Anna or Quincy, the spouse of the veteran may be admitted as a resident of the Home, subject to the rules and regulations of the Home governing the admission of applicants and in accordance with subsection (h) of Section 2.01, if (i) the spouse was married to the veteran for at least 5 years preceding the date of making application for admission, and (ii) the spouse has no adequate means of support and is unable to earn a living. Preference for filling vacant beds or for filling beds from a waiting list shall first be granted to eligible veterans, except as provided under subsection (h) of Section 2.01.
    Every veteran residing in a Home whose spouse is also a resident shall deposit in his or her trust account at the Home such monies from any source of income as may be deemed necessary by the administrator for the personal comfort needs of the spouse. If the veteran does not have a monthly income or cash assets, the personal comfort needs of the resident spouse shall be provided by the State.
    Upon the death of a veteran who has been a resident of a Home, the surviving spouse, if he or she so desires, may thereafter remain for life in the Illinois Veterans Home at Quincy or the Illinois Veterans Home at Anna, subject to the rules and regulations of the Home.
