Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the General Provisions Article of the Illinois Pension Code. Requires every pension fund or retirement system under the Code to develop and implement, by no later than June 30, 2017, a process to identify annuitants who are deceased. The process shall require the pension fund or retirement system to check for any deceased annuitants at least once per month and shall include the use of commonly accepted methods to identify persons who are deceased, which include, but are not limited to, the use of a third party entity that specializes in the identification of deceased persons, the use of data provided by the Social Security Administration, the use of data provided by the Department of Public Health's Office of Vital Records, or the use of any other method that is commonly used by other states to identify deceased persons. Amends the Vital Records Act to make a conforming change. Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement. Effective immediately.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Deletes reference to:
30 ILCS 805/8.39 new
Adds reference to:
30 ILCS 805/8.40 new

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes. Excludes pension funds established under the Downstate Police or Downstate Firefighter Articles of the Illinois Pension Code from the requirement of developing and implementing a process to identify annuitants who are deceased. Provides that the information contained in the vital records shall be made available at no cost to the pension fund or retirement system. Effective immediately.

 Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (State Retirement Systems)
 HB 6030 (H-AM 1) has no impact on the 3 retirement systems administered by our organization. The primary reason for no impact is due to the fact that we are currently in compliance with such provisions.

 Land Conveyance Appraisal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Dept. of Transportation)
 No land conveyances are included in this legislation, therefore, there are no appraisals to be filed.

 State Debt Impact Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 HB 6030 (H-AM 1) would not change the amount of authorization for any type of State-issued or State-supported bond, and, therefore, would not affect the level of State indebtedness.

 Correctional Note (Dept of Corrections)
 This bill has no fiscal or population impact on the Department of Corrections.

 Correctional Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Dept of Corrections)
 This bill has no fiscal or population impact on the Department of Corrections.

 Fiscal Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (State Universities Retirement System)
 HB 6030 (H-AM 1) does not impose any additional costs on the State Universities Retirement System, as the System already complies with the requirements of the legislation. Further, to the extent that access to the State vital records granted in HB 6030 (H-AM1) enables the System to better identify and recoup overpaid amounts, it will result in a net positive impact to the System.

 Pension Note, House Floor Amendment No. 1 (Government Forecasting & Accountability)
 The fiscal impact of HB 6030 (H-AM 1) would be presumably minimal but confined to administrative expenses as every pension fund or retirement system implements a process to track down deceased annuitants.

 Judicial Note (Admin Office of the Illinois Courts)
 This bill would neither increase nor decrease the number of judges needed in the State.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Provides that any information contained in the vital records shall be made available at no cost to any pension fund or retirement system under the Illinois Pension Code for administrative purposes.
