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.

40 ILCS 5/17-142.1

    (40 ILCS 5/17-142.1) (from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 17-142.1)
    Sec. 17-142.1. To defray health insurance costs. To provide for the partial reimbursement of health insurance costs.
    (1) On the first day of September of each year, beginning in 1988, the Board may, by separate warrant, pay to each recipient of a service retirement, disability retirement or survivor's pension an amount to be determined by the Board, which shall represent partial reimbursement for the cost of the recipient's health insurance coverage.
    (2) In lieu of the annual payment authorized in subdivision (1), for pensioners enrolled in the Fund's regular health care deduction plans, the Fund may pay the health insurance premium reimbursement on a monthly rather than annual basis, at the percentage rate established from time to time by the Board. If the Board so directs, these monthly payments may be made in the form of a direct payment of premium and a reduction in the amount deducted from the annuity, rather than in the form of reimbursement by separate warrant.
    (3) Total payments under this Section in any year may not exceed $65,000,000 plus any amount that was authorized to be paid under this Section in the preceding year but was not actually paid by the Board, including any interest earned thereon.
    (4) The total amount of payments under this Section in any year may not exceed 75% of the total cost of health insurance coverage in that year for all the recipients who receive payments authorized by this Section in that year.
