Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Downstate Firefighter Article of the Illinois Pension Code. In certain cases where a deceased firefighter left a surviving minor child but no surviving spouse, increases the pension payable to the guardian of the child from 12% to 20% of the firefighter's monthly salary. For eligible persons receiving the 12% pension on the effective date, the increase takes effect on the pension payment date occurring on or next following the effective date of this amendatory Act. Applies without regard to whether the deceased firefighter was in service on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act. Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement. Effective immediately.
