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 5/1A-110)
    Sec. 1A-110. Actuarial statements by pension funds established under Articles other than 3 or 4.
    (a) Each pension fund established under an Article of this Code other than Article 3 or 4 shall include as part of its annual statement a complete actuarial statement applicable to the plan year.
    The actuarial statement shall be filed with the Division within 9 months after the close of the fiscal year of the pension fund. Any pension fund that fails to file within that time is subject to the penalty provisions of Section 1A-113.
    The board of trustees of each pension fund subject to this Section, on behalf of all its participants, shall engage an enrolled actuary who shall be responsible for the preparation of the materials comprising the actuarial statement. The enrolled actuary shall utilize such assumptions and methods as are necessary for the contents of the matters reported in the actuarial statement to be reasonably related to the experience of the plan and to reasonable expectations, and to represent in the aggregate the actuary's best estimate of anticipated experience under the plan.
    The actuarial statement shall include a description of the actuarial assumptions and methods used to determine the actuarial values in the statement and shall disclose the impact of significant changes in the actuarial assumptions and methods, plan provisions, and other pertinent factors on the actuarial position of the plan.
    The actuarial statement shall include a statement by the enrolled actuary that to the best of his or her knowledge the actuarial statement is complete and accurate and has been prepared in accordance with generally accepted actuarial principles and practice.
    For the purposes of this Section, "enrolled actuary" means an actuary who (1) is a member of the Society of Actuaries or the American Academy of Actuaries and (2) either is enrolled under Subtitle C of Title III of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 or was engaged in providing actuarial services to a public retirement plan in Illinois on July 1, 1983.
    (b) The actuarial statement referred to in subsection (a) shall include all of the following:
        (1) The dates of the plan year and the date of the
actuarial valuation applicable to the plan year for which the actuarial statement is filed.
        (2) The amount of (i) the contributions made by the
participants, and (ii) all other contributions, including those made by the employer or employers.
        (3) The total estimated amount of the covered
compensation with respect to active participants for the plan year for which the statement is filed.
        (4) The number of (i) active participants, (ii)
terminated participants currently eligible for deferred vested pension benefits or the return of contributions made by those participants, and (iii) all other participants and beneficiaries included in the actuarial valuation.
        (5) The following values as of the date of the
actuarial valuation applicable to the plan year for which the statement is filed:
            (i) The current value of assets accumulated in
the plan.
            (ii) The unfunded accrued liability. The major
factors that have resulted in the change in the unfunded accrued liability from the previous year shall be identified. Effects that are individually significant shall be separately identified. As a minimum, the effect of the following shall be shown: plan amendments; changes in actuarial assumptions; experience less (or more) favorable than that assumed; and contributions less (or more) than the normal cost plus interest on the unfunded accrued liability.
            (iii) The amount of accumulated contributions for
active participants (including interest, if any).
            (iv) The actuarial present value of credited
projected benefits for vested participants currently receiving benefits, other vested participants, and non-vested participants.
        (6) The actuarial value of assets.
        (7) Any other information that is necessary to fully
and fairly disclose the actuarial position of the plan and any other information the enrolled actuary may present.
        (8) Any other information regarding the plan that the
Division may by rule request.
