Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Downstate Police Article of the Illinois Pension Code. Provides that a police officer who previously participated in the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund (IMRF) for service as a member of the police department of a municipality and was transferred to that municipality's police pension fund upon its creation under the Downstate Police Article shall, for the purposes of determining the applicable tier of benefits under that Article, be deemed to have become a police officer and member of that municipality's police pension fund on the date that he or she first participated in IMRF as a member of the police department of that municipality, notwithstanding whether that start date was before January 1, 2011. Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement. Effective immediately.

 Pension Note (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 HB 2809 will likely have a substantial impact on affected Downstate Police pension funds. According to the Department of Insurance, HB 2809 could award Tier 1 benefits to Police Officers whose employee contributions were calculated based on a Tier 2 pension. The amount of potentially affected annuitants is currently unknown.
