Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

40 ILCS 5/4-117

    (40 ILCS 5/4-117) (from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 4-117)
    Sec. 4-117. Reentry into active service.
    (a) If a firefighter receiving pension payments reenters active service, pension payments shall be suspended while he or she is in service. If the firefighter again retires or is discharged, his or her monthly pension shall be resumed in the same amount as was paid upon first retirement or discharge unless he or she remained in active service 3 or more years after re-entry in which case the monthly pension shall be based on the salary attached to the firefighter's rank at the date of last retirement.
    (b) If a deferred pensioner re-enters active service, and again retires or is discharged from the fire service, his or her pension shall be based on the salary attached to the rank held in the fire service at the date of earlier retirement, unless the firefighter remains in active service for 3 or more years after re-entry, in which case the monthly pension shall be based on the salary attached to the firefighter's rank at the date of last retirement.
    (c) If a pensioner or deferred pensioner re-enters or is recalled to active service and is thereafter injured, and the injury is not related to an injury for which he or she was previously receiving a disability pension, the 3 year service requirement shall not apply in order for the firefighter to qualify for the increased pension based on the rate of pay at the time of the new injury.
