(40 ILCS 5/1A-105)
Examination and subpoena of records and witnesses.
Director may administer oaths and affirmations and summon and compel the
attendance before him or her and examine under oath any officer, trustee,
agent, actuary, attorney, or employee connected either directly or indirectly
with any pension fund, or any other person having information regarding the
condition, affairs, management, administration, or methods of conducting a
pension fund. The Director may require any person having possession of any
record, book, paper, contract, or other document pertaining to a pension fund
to surrender it or to otherwise afford the Director access to it and for
failure so to do the Director may attach the same.
Should any person fail to obey the summons of the Director or refuse to
surrender to him or her or afford him or her access to any such record, book,
paper, contract, or other document, the Director may apply to the circuit court
of the county in which the principal office of the pension fund involved is
located, and the court, if it finds that the Director has not exceeded his or
her authority in the matter, may, by order duly entered, require the attendance
of witnesses and the production of all relevant documents required by the
Director in carrying out his or her responsibilities under this Code. Upon
refusal or neglect to obey the order of the court, the court may compel
obedience by proceedings for contempt of court.
