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.

"Pension credit": Credit or equities acquired by an employee in the form of contributions, earnings or service as defined under the law governing each of the systems in which he has credits or equities, except credits and equities (1) of less than one year in any one system, except that this one-year limitation shall not apply to (A) employees who transfer or are transferred, as a class, from one participating system to another or who are persons to whom Section 14-108.2a or 14-108.2b applies or (B) persons who move from participation with a school district as a teacher aide under Article 7 to participation under Article 16; or (2) which have previously been forfeited by acceptance of a refund or which have been applied towards a retirement annuity and have not been reestablished in accordance with the law governing the system from which the refund or retirement annuity had been received.
