(5 ILCS 340/4.5)
State annuitant withholding.
A State annuitant may authorize
the withholding of a portion of his or her annuity or disability benefit for
contribution to a maximum of 4 organizations described in paragraphs (b) and
(c) of Section 3 of this Act. Upon written request of a State annuitant, a
retirement system may deduct or direct the State Comptroller to deduct from
the annuity or disability benefit of the State annuitant the amount specified
in the written request for payment to the organization designated by the State
annuitant. The retirement system may determine the timing for the deductions
based on the retirement system's benefit processing schedule. The moneys so
deducted shall be paid over promptly to the organizations designated by the
State annuitant by means of warrants drawn by the retirement system or the
State Comptroller against the fund from which the State annuitant is receiving
his or her annuity or disability benefit.
Withholding under this Section may be terminated by the State annuitant
at any time by filing a written direction with the retirement system.
Each retirement system may promulgate rules regarding the administration of
this Section with respect to persons receiving an annuity or disability benefit
from the retirement system.
