Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Cook County Article of the Illinois Pension Code.

Provides that the payment to a person, nursing home, hospital, or mental institution for the benefit of a minor or person under legal disability shall be an absolute discharge of the Fund's liability with respect to the amount so paid. Requires any person, nursing home, hospital, or mental institution accepting that payment to notify the Fund of the death or any other relevant change in the status of the minor or person under legal disability.
