Illinois Compiled Statutes
Information maintained by the Legislative
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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

(1) Subject to such rules and regulations
as the Secretary may promulgate, a credit union may participate in loans
to credit union members jointly with other credit unions, corporations, or
financial institutions. An originating credit union may originate
loans only to its own members. A participating credit union that is
not the originating lender may participate in loans made to its own members or
to members of another participating credit union.
"Originating lender" means the participating credit union with which the member
contracts. A master participation agreement must be properly executed, and the
agreement must include provisions for identifying, either through documents
incorporated by reference or directly in the agreement, the participation loan
or loans prior to their sale.
(2) Any credit union with assets of $500,000 or more may loan to its members
under scholarship programs which are
subject to a federal or state law providing 100% repayment guarantee.
(3) A credit union may purchase the conditional sales
and similar instruments which evidence an indebtedness of its members. In the management of its assets, liabilities, and liquidity, a credit union may purchase the conditional sales contracts, notes, and other similar instruments that evidence the consumer indebtedness of the members of another credit union. "Consumer indebtedness" means indebtedness incurred for personal, family, or household purposes.
(4) With approval of the board of directors, a credit union may make loans,
either on its own or jointly with other credit unions, corporations or
institutions, to credit union organizations; provided, that the aggregate
amount of all such loans outstanding shall not at any time exceed the greater
of 6% of the paid-in and unimpaired capital and surplus of the credit
union or the amount authorized for federal credit unions.
(5) With the approval of the board of directors, a credit union may make loans, either on its own or jointly with other credit unions, corporations, or financial institutions, to community development financial institutions as defined in regulations issued by the U.S. Department of the Treasury and minority depository institutions as defined by the National Credit Union Administration. The aggregate amount of all such loans outstanding shall not at any time exceed 5% of the paid-in and unimpaired capital and surplus of the credit union.
