(40 ILCS 5/14-125)
(from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 14-125)
Nonoccupational disability benefit - Amount of.
nonoccupational disability benefit shall be 50% of the member's final
average compensation at the time disability occurred. In the case of a
member whose benefit was resumed due to the same disability, the amount of
the benefit shall be the same
as that last paid before resumption of State employment. In the event
that a temporary disability benefit has been received, the nonoccupational
disability benefit shall be subject to adjustment by the Board under Section 14-123.1.
If a covered employee is eligible for a disability benefit before attaining
age 65 or a retirement benefit on or after attaining age 65 under the
Federal Social Security Act, the amount of the member's nonoccupational disability
benefit shall be reduced by the amount of primary benefit the member would
be eligible to receive
under such Act, whether or not entitlement thereto came
about as the result of service as a covered employee under this Article.
The Board may make such reduction if it appears that the employee may be
so eligible pending determination of eligibility and make an appropriate
adjustment if necessary after such determination. The amount of any
disability benefit payable under
this Article shall not be reduced by reason of any increase under the
Federal Social Security Act which occurs after the offset required by this
Section is first applied to that benefit.
