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.

Beginning on the effective date 1%, and beginning January 1, 1976, 1-1/2% of the salary of each male present employee and future entrant shall be deducted and contributed to the fund for widow's annuity or Tier 2 surviving spouse's annuity; however, in the case of a future entrant who attains age 63 prior to January 1, 1988 while still in service, no deductions shall be made for the period between the date the employee attains age 63 and January 1, 1988. The deductions shall be made from each payment of salary and shall continue during the employee's service.
    An employee in the service and over age 57 on the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1969 shall have the option of contributing 1% of salary together with the effective rate of interest for service rendered by him subsequent to his attainment of age 57 and prior to such effective date. If such retroactive contributions are made the wife or widow shall be entitled to the widow's annuity provided in Section 5-136.
    Concurrently with each such deduction, the city shall contribute 2% of each such payment of salary.
    Each deduction from salary and contribution by the city shall be allocated to the account of and credited to the employee. The amount so credited shall be improved at the applicable rate of interest; except that in the case of an employee who attains age 63 prior to January 1, 1988 while still in service, no interest shall be credited between the date the employee attains age 63 and January 1, 1988.
