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.

760 ILCS 3/1324

    (760 ILCS 3/1324)
    Sec. 1324. Disposition of trust property subject to power. In disposing of trust property subject to a power of appointment, whether exercisable by a will or an instrument other than a will, a trustee acting in good faith shall have no liability to any appointee or taker in default of appointment for relying upon a will, regardless of whether it was admitted to probate, or an instrument believed to be genuine purporting to exercise a power of appointment or for assuming that there is no will or instrument exercising the power of appointment in the absence of actual knowledge thereof within 3 months of the death of the powerholder, in the case of a will, or 3 months of the last date on which the power of appointment may be exercised, in the case of any other instrument. Nothing in this Section precludes a donor of a power or a trustee from requiring that a will be admitted to probate.
