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.

    Sec. 8-152.1. Widow's annuity for widow married to member for at least 10 years. Notwithstanding Section 8-152 or any other provision of this Code to the contrary, if (1) a member has a spouse who would have qualified for a minimum annuity for widows under Section 8-150.1 at the time of the member's retirement, (2) the qualifying spouse dies, (3) the member subsequently remarries, and (4) the member does not receive a refund under Section 8-169, then the member's widow shall be entitled to a widow's annuity if (i) the member dies after May 1, 2004 and before November 1, 2004 and (ii) the widow was married to the member for at least the last 10 years prior to the member's death. A widow who elects to receive a widow's annuity under this Section is thereafter ineligible to receive any other survivor's benefit under this Article. A widow who is receiving any survivor's benefit under this Article is thereafter ineligible to receive a widow's annuity under this Section. If a widow who is receiving a widow's annuity under this Section remarries, then the benefits paid to that widow shall be terminated effective on the last day of the month in which the widow remarries. To establish credit under this Section, the widow must apply to the Fund on or before July 1, 2006.
