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 5/8-165

    (40 ILCS 5/8-165) (from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 8-165)
    Sec. 8-165. Re-entry into service.
    (a) Except as provided in subsection (c), when an employee receiving age and service or prior service annuity who has withdrawn from service after the effective date re-enters service before age 65, any annuity previously granted and any annuity fixed for his wife shall be cancelled. The employee shall be credited for annuity purposes with sums sufficient to provide annuities equal to those cancelled, as of their ages on the date of re-entry; provided, the maximum age of the wife for this purpose shall be as provided in Section 8-155 of this Article.
    The sums so credited shall provide for annuities to be fixed and granted in the future. Contributions by the employees and the city for the purposes of this Article shall be made, and when the proper time arrives, as provided in this Article, new annuities based upon the total credit for annuity purposes and the entire term of his service shall be fixed for the employee and his wife.
    If the employee's wife died before he re-entered service, no part of any credits for widow's or widow's prior service annuity at the time annuity for his wife was fixed shall be credited upon re-entry into service, and no such sums shall thereafter be used to provide such annuity.
    (b) Except as provided in subsection (c), when an employee re-enters service after age 65, payments on account of any annuity previously granted shall be suspended during the time thereafter that he is in service, and when he again withdraws, annuity payments shall be resumed. If the employee dies in service, his widow shall receive the amount of annuity previously fixed for her.
    (c) For school years beginning on or after July 1, 2021, an age and service or prior service annuity shall not be cancelled in the case of an employee who is re-employed by the Board of Education of the city as a Special Education Classroom Assistant or Classroom Assistant on a temporary and non-annual basis or on an hourly basis so long as the person: (1) does not work for compensation on more than 120 days in a school year; or (2) does not accept gross compensation for the re-employment in a school year in excess of $30,000. These limitations apply only to school years that begin on or after July 1, 2021. Re-employment under this subsection does not require contributions, result in service credit being earned or granted, or constitute active participation in the Fund.
