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.

215 ILCS 5/245.1

    (215 ILCS 5/245.1) (from Ch. 73, par. 857.1)
    Sec. 245.1. Assignability of life insurance. No provision of the Illinois Insurance Code, or any other law prohibits an insured under any policy of life insurance, or any other person who may be the owner of any rights under such policy, from making an assignment of all or any part of his rights and privileges under the policy including but not limited to the right to designate a beneficiary thereunder and to have an individual policy issued in accordance with paragraphs (G), (H), and (K) of Section 231.1 of the Illinois Insurance Code. Subject to the terms of the policy or any contract relating thereto, an assignment by an insured or by any other owner of rights under the policy, made before or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1969 is valid for the purpose of vesting in the assignee, in accordance with any provisions included therein as to the time at which it is effective, all rights and privileges so assigned. However, such assignment is without prejudice to the company on account of any payment it makes or individual policy it issues in accordance with paragraphs (d) and (g) of Section 231 before receipt of notice of the assignment. This amendatory Act of 1969 acknowledges, declares and codifies the existing right of assignment of interests under life insurance policies.
