(305 ILCS 5/3-10.6)
(from Ch. 23, par. 3-10.6)
Release of lien.
The County Department, under the rules and regulations of the Illinois
Department, shall issue a certificate of release of lien upon payment by
the recipient, his spouse, heirs at law, next of kin, or personal
representatives, of the total amount of aid to which the lien applies, or
upon submission of a bond with surety or sureties satisfactory to the
Illinois Department, conditioned upon payment of such amount. A certificate
of release may also be issued upon payment of the value of the property to
which the lien applies; in such case, the release shall reserve the
Illinois Department's claim for the balance against subsequently discovered
assets of the recipient.
The Illinois Department may also by rule provide for release of the lien
in the case of recipients who have dependent spouses and minor children or
for whom rehabilitative training for employment or other means of
self-support is feasible where release of the lien would facilitate
achievement of self-support status and prevent or reduce the likelihood of
return to dependency.
