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.

205 ILCS 305/9

    (205 ILCS 305/9) (from Ch. 17, par. 4410)
    Sec. 9. Reports and examinations.
    (1) Credit unions shall report to the Department on forms supplied by the Department, in accordance with a schedule published by the Department. A recapitulation of the annual reports shall be compiled and published annually by the Department, for the use of the General Assembly, credit unions, various educational institutions and other interested parties. A credit union which fails to file any report when due shall pay to the Department a late filing fee for each day the report is overdue as prescribed by rule. The Secretary may extend the time for filing a report.
    (2) The Secretary may require special examinations of and special financial reports from a credit union or a credit union organization in which a credit union loans, invests, or delegates substantially all managerial duties and responsibilities when he determines that such examinations and reports are necessary to enable the Department to determine the safety of a credit union's operation or its solvency. The cost to the Department of the aforesaid special examinations shall be borne by the credit union being examined as prescribed by rule.
    (3) All credit unions incorporated under this Act shall be examined at least biennially by the Department or, at the discretion of the Secretary, by a public accountant registered by the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. The costs of an examination shall be paid by the credit union. The scope of all examinations by a public accountant shall be at least equal to the examinations made by the Department. The examiners shall have full access to, and may compel the production of, all the books, papers, securities and accounts of any credit union. A special examination shall be made by the Department or by a public accountant approved by the Department upon written request of 5 or more members, who guarantee the expense of the same. Any credit union refusing to submit to an examination when ordered by the Department shall be reported to the Attorney General, who shall institute proceedings to have its charter revoked. If the Secretary determines that the examination of a credit union is to be conducted by a public accountant registered by the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation and the examination is done in conjunction with the credit union's external independent audit of financial statements, the requirements of this Section and subsection (3) of Section 34 shall be deemed met.
    (3.5) Pursuant to Section 8, the Secretary shall adopt rules that ensure consistency and due process in the examination process. The Secretary may also establish guidelines that (i) define the scope of the examination process and (ii) clarify examination items to be resolved. The rules, formal guidance, interpretive letters, or opinions furnished to credit unions by the Secretary may be relied upon by the credit unions.
    (4) A copy of the completed report of examination and a review comment letter, if any, citing exceptions revealed during the examination, shall be submitted to the credit union by the Department. A detailed report stating the corrective actions taken by the board of directors on each exception set forth in the review comment letter shall be filed with the Department within 40 days after the date of the review comment letter, or as otherwise directed by the Department. Any credit union through its officers, directors, committee members or employees, which willfully provides fraudulent or misleading information regarding the corrective actions taken on exceptions appearing in a review comment letter may have its operations restricted to the collection of principal and interest on loans outstanding and the payment of normal expenses and salaries until all exceptions are corrected and accepted by the Department.
    (5) The Secretary may accept an examination from the National Credit Union Administration or a private insurer of share deposits approved by the Secretary instead of an examination conducted by the Department or by a public accountant registered by the Department pursuant to subsection (3). Acceptance of an examination from the National Credit Union Administration or an approved private insurer of share deposits shall only be permitted on an alternating basis with examinations that the Department or a registered public accountant conducts.
