    Sec. 1-110.10. Servicer certification.
    (a) For the purposes of this Section:
    "Illinois finance entity" means any entity chartered under the Illinois Banking Act, the Savings Bank Act, the Illinois Credit Union Act, or the Illinois Savings and Loan Act of 1985 and any person or entity licensed under the Residential Mortgage License Act of 1987, the Consumer Installment Loan Act, or the Sales Finance Agency Act.
    "Retirement system or pension fund" means a retirement system or pension fund established under this Code.
    (b) In order for an Illinois finance entity to be eligible for investment or deposit of retirement system or pension fund assets, the Illinois finance entity must annually certify that it complies with the requirements of the High Risk Home Loan Act and the rules adopted pursuant to that Act that are applicable to that Illinois finance entity. For Illinois finance entities with whom the retirement system or pension fund is investing or depositing assets on the effective date of this Section, the initial certification required under this Section shall be completed within 6 months after the effective date of this Section. For Illinois finance entities with whom the retirement system or pension fund is not investing or depositing assets on the effective date of this Section, the initial certification required under this Section must be completed before the retirement system or pension fund may invest or deposit assets with the Illinois finance entity.
    (c) A retirement system or pension fund shall submit the certifications to the Public Pension Division of the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, and the Division shall notify the Secretary of Financial and Professional Regulation if a retirement system or pension fund fails to do so.
    (d) If an Illinois finance entity fails to provide an initial certification within 6 months after the effective date of this Section or fails to submit an annual certification, then the retirement system or pension fund shall notify the Illinois finance entity. The Illinois finance entity shall, within 30 days after the date of notification, either (i) notify the retirement system or pension fund of its intention to certify and complete certification or (ii) notify the retirement system or pension fund of its intention to not complete certification. If an Illinois finance entity fails to provide certification, then the retirement system or pension fund shall, within 90 days, divest, or attempt in good faith to divest, the retirement system's or pension fund's assets with that Illinois finance entity. The retirement system or pension fund shall immediately notify the Department of the Illinois finance entity's failure to provide certification.
    (e) If any provision of this Section or its application to any person or circumstance is held invalid, the invalidity of that provision or application does not affect other provisions or applications of this Section that can be given effect without the invalid provision or application.
