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.

    (740 ILCS 45/18) (from Ch. 70, par. 88)
    Sec. 18. Claims against awards.
    (a) An award is not subject to enforcement, attachment, garnishment, or other process, except that an award is not exempt from a claim of a creditor to the extent that he or she provided products, services, or accommodations the costs of which are included in the award.
    (b) An assignment or agreement to assign a right to compensation for loss accruing in the future is unenforceable, except:
        (1) an assignment of a right to compensation for work
loss to secure payment of maintenance or child support; or
        (2) an assignment of a right to compensation to the
extent of the cost of products, services, or accommodations necessitated by the injury or death on which the claim is based and are provided or to be provided by the assignee.
    (c) The court may order that all or a portion of an award be paid jointly to the applicant and another person or solely and directly to another person to the extent that such other person has provided products, services or accommodations, the costs of which are included in the award, or to another person to the extent that such other person paid or became obligated to pay expenses incurred by the victim or applicant.
    (d) If an award under subsection (c) of this Section is offset by the Comptroller, pursuant to the Uncollected State Claims Act, the intended individual or entity must credit the applicant's or victim's account for the amount ordered by the Court of Claims, and the intended individual or entity is prohibited from pursuing payment from the applicant or victim for any portion that is offset. The Comptroller shall provide notice as provided in Section 10.05 of the State Comptroller Act.
