(from Ch. 15, par. 209.04)
Benefits recoverable under Workers' Compensation Act and
Workers' Occupational Diseases Act. Whenever the Comptroller has been
notified by the State
Employees' Retirement System of Illinois of a claim for recovery of excess
benefits paid which are recoverable from benefits payable under the
Workers' Compensation Act or the Workers' Occupational Diseases Act, the
Comptroller shall review all vouchers presented for payment of Workers'
Compensation or Occupational Disease benefits to the injured party, and
shall reject and notify the submitting agency of any such
voucher which is
subject to the recovery claim of the State Employees' Retirement System.
Upon receiving notification of the rejection of a voucher
under this Section, the State agency
shall reprocess the voucher to provide for (1) payment to the State Employees'
Retirement System to satisfy its recovery claim, and (2) payment of any excess
to the original payee. The State agency shall then promptly resubmit the
reprocessed voucher to the Comptroller.
