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 5/9-161

    (40 ILCS 5/9-161) (from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 9-161)
    Sec. 9-161. Re-entry into service. (a) When an employee who has withdrawn from service after the effective date re-enters service before age 65, any annuity previously granted and any annuity fixed for his wife shall be cancelled.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 the actuarial value of 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 9-151 of this Article. The sums so credited shall provide for annuities to be fixed and granted in the future. Contributions by the employee and the county 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 sums accumulated to his 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 has 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) 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 annuity previously fixed for her.
    (c) If an employee annuitant re-enters service as an election worker and provides services for a scheduled federal, State, or local election for a period of 60 days or less during a calendar year, that employee annuitant's annuity shall not be suspended and such employee annuitant shall not be considered to be in service within the meaning of Section 9-108.3 and is not entitled to benefits for employees in service. If an employee annuitant re-enters service for a period longer than 60 days during a calendar year, the annuity shall be suspended or cancelled retroactive to the initial date of re-entry.
