Illinois Compiled Statutes

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 5/4-138.10)
    Sec. 4-138.10. Mistake in benefit.
    (a) If the Fund commits a mistake by setting any benefit at an incorrect amount, it shall adjust the benefit to the correct level as soon as may be practicable after the mistake is discovered. The term "mistake" includes a clerical or administrative error executed by the Fund or participant as it relates to a benefit under this Article; however, in no case shall "mistake" include any benefit as it relates to the reasonable calculation of the benefit or aspects of the benefit based on salary, service credit, calculation or determination of a disability, date of retirement, or other factors significant to the calculation of the benefit that were reasonably understood or agreed to by the Fund at the time of retirement.
    (b) If the benefit was mistakenly set too low, the Fund shall make a lump sum payment to the recipient of an amount equal to the difference between the benefits that should have been paid and those actually paid, plus interest at the rate prescribed by the Public Pension Division of the Department of Insurance from the date the unpaid amounts accrued to the date of payment.
    (c) If the benefit was mistakenly set too high, the Fund may recover the amount overpaid from the recipient thereof, either directly or by deducting such amount from the remaining benefits payable to the recipient as is indicated by the recipient. If the overpayment is recovered by deductions from the remaining benefits payable to the recipient, the monthly deduction shall not exceed 10% of the corrected monthly benefit unless otherwise indicated by the recipient.
    However, if (i) the amount of the benefit was mistakenly set too high, and (ii) the error was undiscovered for 3 years or longer, and (iii) the error was not the result of fraud committed by the affected participant or beneficiary, then upon discovery of the mistake the benefit shall be adjusted to the correct level, but the recipient of the benefit need not repay to the Fund the excess amounts received in error.

(a) A policeman, prior to retirement on annuity, may elect to take a lesser amount of annuity and provide, with the actuarial value of the amount by which his annuity is reduced, a reversionary annuity for a wife or husband.

    (b) The death of the designated reversionary annuitant prior to the policeman's retirement shall automatically void the option. If the reversionary annuitant dies after the policeman's retirement and before the death of the policeman annuitant, the reduced annuity being paid to the retired policeman annuitant shall be increased to the amount of annuity before reduction for the reversionary annuity and no reversionary annuity shall be payable.

    (e) Notwithstanding the fact that a policeman has elected to receive a reduced annuity under this Section, the increases in annuity provided in Section 5-167.1 of this Article shall be calculated on the amount of the original unreduced annuity.
    (f) The amount of the monthly reversionary annuity shall be determined by multiplying the amount of the monthly reduction in the policeman's annuity by the applicable factor in the following table based on the age of the policeman and the difference in the age of the policeman and the age of the policeman's spouse at the starting date of the policeman's annuity.

    Sec. 5-144. Death from injury in the performance of acts of duty; compensation annuity and supplemental annuity.
    (a) Beginning January 1, 1986, and without regard to whether or not the annuity in question began before that date, if the annuity for the widow of a policeman whose death, on or after January 1, 1940, results from injury incurred in the performance of an act or acts of duty, is not equal to the sum hereinafter stated, "compensation annuity" equal to the difference between the annuity and an amount equal to 75% of the policeman's salary attached to the position he held by certification and appointment as a result of competitive civil service examination that would ordinarily have been paid to him as though he were in active discharge of his duties shall be payable to the widow until the policeman, had he lived, would have attained age 63. The total amount of the widow's annuity and children's awards payable to the family of such policeman shall not exceed the amounts stated in Section 5-152.
    The provisions of this Section, as amended by Public Act 84-1104, including the reference to the date upon which the deceased policeman would have attained age 63, shall apply to all widows of policemen whose death occurs on or after January 1, 1940 due to injury incurred in the performance of an act of duty, regardless of whether such death occurred prior to September 17, 1969. For those widows of policemen that died prior to September 17, 1969, who became eligible for compensation annuity by the action of Public Act 84-1104, such compensation annuity shall begin and be calculated from January 1, 1986. The provisions of this amendatory Act of 1987 are intended to restate and clarify the intent of Public Act 84-1104, and do not make any substantive change.
    (b) Upon termination of the compensation annuity, "supplemental annuity" shall become payable to the widow, equal to the difference between the annuity for the widow and an amount equal to 75% of the annual salary (including all salary increases and longevity raises) that the policeman would have been receiving when he attained age 63 if the policeman had continued in service at the same rank (whether career service or exempt) that he last held in the police department. The increase in supplemental annuity resulting from this amendatory Act of the 92nd General Assembly applies without regard to whether the deceased policeman was in service on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act and is payable from July 1, 2002 or the date upon which the supplemental annuity begins, whichever is later.
    (c) Neither compensation nor supplemental annuity shall be paid unless the death of the policeman was a direct result of the injury, or the injury was of such character as to prevent him from subsequently resuming service as a policeman; nor shall compensation or supplemental annuity be paid unless the widow was the wife of the policeman when the injury occurred.

    (b) A wife or widow of a policeman who withdraws, whether or not he enters upon annuity, and dies out of service, if the marriage occurred after the effective date and less than one year prior to the policeman's death, and the widow was not his wife while he was in service; if after an evidentiary hearing, however, the Board, at its sole discretion determines that special circumstances exist warranting payment of a widow's annuity, then and only then shall the Board have authority to grant and award the annuity that would have been otherwise available;
    (c) A wife or widow of a policeman who (1) has served 10 or more years, (2) dies out of service after he has withdrawn, and (3) has received a refund of the sums to his credit for annuity, and such refund has not been repaid in accordance with the other provisions of this Article;
    (d) A wife or widow of a policeman who dies out of service after he has withdrawn, and who has not served at least 10 years;
    (e) A former wife of a policeman who has had a judgment of dissolution of marriage from her policeman husband annulled, vacated or set aside by court proceedings subsequent to the policeman's death, unless (1) the proceedings were filed within 5 years after the date of dissolution of marriage, and within 1 year after the policeman's death, and (2) the board was made a party to the proceedings;
    (f) A widow of a policeman who died prior to January 1, 1922, if she had been denied a pension by the board of trustees of any police pension fund existing in the city by operation of any other law;
    (g) A widow of a policeman who has been denied a pension or annuity by the board created by this Article and who files a petition for a rehearing, or files a second application for annuity, unless the petition for rehearing or second application is filed within 1 year from the date upon which the annuity was denied by the board; provided, that in the case of legal disability, the year of limitation shall begin on the day after the termination of such disability.

    (a) Beginning on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 95th General Assembly, a widow's annuity shall no longer be subject to termination or suspension under this Section due to remarriage. Any widow's annuity that was previously terminated or suspended under this Section by reason of remarriage shall, upon application, be resumed as of the date of the application, but in no event sooner than the effective date of this amendatory Act. The resumption shall not be retroactive. This subsection (a) applies regardless of whether or not the deceased policeman was in service on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 95th General Assembly.
    (b) This subsection (b) does not apply on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 95th General Assembly.
    Any annuity granted to a widow shall be suspended when she remarries, unless she remarries after attaining age 60 or the annuity was granted under Section 5-144 and the remarriage takes place after October 31, 1989. Except as otherwise provided by this Section, if a widow remarries before reaching age 60, annuity payment shall be suspended, but the widow's annuity payments shall be resumed if the subsequent marriage ends either by dissolution of marriage, declaration of invalidity of marriage or the death of the husband. If a widow remarries after attaining age 60, or the annuity was granted under Section 5-144 and the remarriage takes place after June 1, 1990, regardless of whether or not the deceased policeman was in service on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1991, the widow's annuity shall continue without interruption.
    If when a widow dies she has not received, in form of annuity, an amount equal to the accumulated employee contributions for widow's annuity, the difference between such accumulated contributions and the sum received by her, along with any part of the accumulated contributions for age and service annuity remaining in the fund at her death shall be refunded to the policemen's children, in equal parts to each; provided, if any child is less than age 18, such part of any such amount required to pay annuities to such children shall be transferred to the child's annuity reserve. If no children or descendants thereof survive the policeman, such refund shall be paid to the estate of the policeman. In making refunds under this Section, no interest shall be considered upon either the total of annuity payments made or the amounts subject to refund.

A child's annuity shall be payable in the following cases of policemen who die on or after the effective date: (a) A policeman whose death results from injury incurred in the performance of an act or acts of duty; (b) a policeman who dies in service from any cause; (c) a policeman who withdraws upon or after attainment of age 50 and who enters upon or is eligible for annuity; (d) a present employee with at least 20 years of service who dies after withdrawal, whether or not he has entered upon annuity.
    Only one annuity shall be granted and paid for the benefit of any child if both parents have been policemen.
    The annuity shall be paid, without regard to the fact that the death of the deceased policeman parent may have occurred prior to the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1975, in an amount equal to 10% of the annual maximum salary attached to the classified civil service position of a first class patrolman on July 1, 1975, or the date of the policeman's death, whichever is later, for each child while a widow or widower of the deceased policeman survives and in an amount equal to 15% of the annual maximum salary attached to the classified civil service position of a first class patrolman on July 1, 1975, or the date of the policeman's death, whichever is later, while no widow or widower shall survive, provided that if the combined annuities for the widow and children of a policeman who dies on or after September 26, 1969, as the result of an act of duty, or for the children of such policeman in any case wherein a widow or widower does not exist, exceed the salary that would ordinarily have been paid to him if he had been in the active discharge of his duties, all such annuities shall be reduced pro rata so that the combined annuities for the family shall not exceed such limitation. The compensation portion of the annuity of the widow shall not be considered in making such reduction. No age limitation in this Section or Section 5-151 shall apply to a child who is so physically or mentally handicapped as to be unable to support himself or herself. Benefits payable under this Section shall not be reduced or terminated by reason of any child's attainment of age 18 if he is then dependent by reason of a physical or mental disability but shall continue to be paid as long as such dependency continues. For the purposes of this subsection, "disability" means inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to result in death or which has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months.

    Child's annuity shall be paid to the parent providing for the child, unless another person is appointed by a court of law as the child's guardian.

    Sec. 5-153. Death benefit.
    (a) Effective January 1, 1962, an ordinary death benefit is payable on account of any policeman in service and in receipt of salary on or after such date, which benefit is in addition to all other annuities and benefits herein provided. This benefit is payable upon death of a policeman:
        (1) occurring in active service while in receipt of
    
salary;
        (2) on an authorized and approved leave of absence,
    
without salary, beginning on or after January 1, 1962, if the death occurs within 60 days from the date the employee was in receipt of salary; or otherwise in the service and not separated by resignation or discharge beginning January 1, 1962 if death occurs before his resignation or discharge from the service;
        (3) receiving duty disability or ordinary disability
    
benefit;
        (4) occurring within 60 days from the date of
    
termination of duty disability or ordinary disability benefit payments if re-entry into service had not occurred; or
        (5) occurring on retirement and while in receipt of
    
an age and service annuity, Tier 2 monthly retirement annuity, or prior service annuity; provided (a) retirement on such annuity occurred on or after January 1, 1962, and (b) such separation from service was effective on or after the policeman's attainment of age 50, and (c) application for such annuity was made within 60 days after separation from service.
    (b) The ordinary death benefit is payable to such beneficiary or beneficiaries as the policeman has nominated by written direction duly signed and acknowledged before an officer authorized to take acknowledgments, and filed with the board. If no such written direction has been filed or if the designated beneficiaries do not survive the policeman, payment of the benefit shall be made to his estate.
    (c) Until December 31, 1977, if death occurs prior to retirement on annuity and before the policeman's attainment of age 50, the amount of the benefit payable is $6,000. If death occurs prior to retirement, at age 50 or over, the benefit of $6,000 shall be reduced $400 for each year (commencing on the policeman's attainment of age 50, and thereafter on each succeeding birthdate) that the policeman's age, at date of death, is more than age 50, but in no event below the amount of $2,000. However, if death results from injury incurred in the performance of an act or acts of duty, prior to retirement on annuity, the amount of the benefit payable is $6,000 notwithstanding the age attained.
    Until December 31, 1977, if the policeman's death occurs while he is in receipt of an annuity, the benefit is $2,000 if retirement was effective upon attainment of age 55 or greater.

    After December 31, 1977, and on or before January 1, 1986, if death occurs prior to retirement on annuity and before the policeman's attainment of age 50, the amount of the benefit payable is $7,000.

If the policeman retired at age 50 or over and before age 55, the benefit of $2,250 shall be reduced $100 for each year or fraction of a year that the policeman's age at retirement was less than age 55 to a minimum payment of $1,750.

However, if death results from injury in the performance of an act or acts of duty, prior to retirement on annuity, the amount of benefit payable is $12,000 notwithstanding the age attained.
    After January 1, 1986, if the policeman's death occurs while he is in receipt of an annuity, the benefit is $6,000.

    (40 ILCS 5/5-154) (from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 5-154)
    Sec. 5-154. Duty disability benefit; child's disability benefit.
    (a) An active policeman who becomes disabled on or after the effective date as the result of injury incurred on or after such date in the performance of an act of duty, has a right to receive duty disability benefit during any period of such disability for which he does not have a right to receive salary, equal to 75% of his salary, as salary is defined in this Article, at the time the disability is allowed; or in the case of a policeman on duty disability who returns to active employment at any time for a period of at least 2 years and is again disabled from the same cause or causes, 75% of his salary, as salary is defined in this Article, at the time disability is allowed; provided, however, that:
        (i) If the disability resulted from any physical
    
defect or mental disorder or any disease which existed at the time the injury was sustained, or if the disability is less than 50% of total disability for any service of a remunerative character, the duty disability benefit shall be 50% of salary as defined in this Article.
        (ii) Beginning January 1, 1996, no duty disability
    
benefit that has been payable under this Section for at least 10 years shall be less than 50% of the current salary attached from time to time to the rank held by the policeman at the time of removal from the police department payroll, regardless of whether that removal occurred before the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1995. Beginning on January 1, 2000, no duty disability benefit that has been payable under this Section for at least 7 years shall be less than 60% of the current salary attached from time to time to the rank held by the policeman at the time of removal from the police department payroll, regardless of whether that removal occurred before the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 92nd General Assembly.
        (iii) If the Board finds that the disability of the
    
policeman is of such a nature as to permanently render him totally disabled for any service of a remunerative character, the duty disability benefit shall be 75% of the current salary attached from time to time to the rank held by the policeman at the time of removal from the police department payroll. In the case of a policeman receiving a duty disability benefit under this Section on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 92nd General Assembly, the increase in benefit provided by this amendatory Act, if any, shall begin to accrue as of the date that the Board makes the required finding of permanent total disability, regardless of whether removal from the payroll occurred before the effective date of this amendatory Act.
    (b) The policeman shall also have a right to child's disability benefit of $100 per month for each unmarried child, the issue of the policeman, less than age 18, but the total amount of child's disability benefit shall not exceed 25% of his salary as defined in this Article. The increase in child's disability benefit provided by this amendatory Act of the 92nd General Assembly applies beginning January 1, 2000 to all such benefits payable on or after that date, regardless of whether the disabled policeman is in active service on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act.
    (c) Duty disability benefit shall be payable until the policeman becomes age 63 or would have been retired by operation of law, whichever is later, and child's disability benefit shall be paid during any such period of disability until the child attains age 18. Thereafter the policeman shall receive the annuity provided in accordance with the other provisions of this Article.
    (d) A policeman who suffers a heart attack during the performance and discharge of his or her duties as a policeman shall be considered injured in the performance of an act of duty and shall be eligible for all benefits that the City provides for police officers injured in the performance of an act of duty. This subsection (d) is a restatement of existing law and applies without regard to whether the policeman is in service on or after the effective date of Public Act 89-12 or this amendatory Act of 1996.

    Sec. 5-154.1. Occupational disease disability benefit.
    (a) The General Assembly finds that service in the police department requires police officers in times of stress and danger to perform unusual tasks; that police officers are subject to exposure to extreme heat or extreme cold in certain seasons while performing their duties; and that these conditions exist and arise out of or in the course of employment.
    (b) Any police officer with at least 10 years of service who suffers a heart attack or any other disabling heart disease but is not entitled to a benefit under Section 5-154 is entitled to receive an occupational disease disability benefit under this Section. The occupational disease disability benefit shall be 65% of the salary attached to the rank held by the police officer in the police service at the time of his or her removal from the police department payroll. However, no occupational disease disability benefit that has been payable under this Section for at least 10 years shall be less than 50% of the current salary attached from time to time to the rank held by the police officer at the time of his or her removal from the police department payroll.
    The police officer is also entitled to a child's disability benefit of $100 per month for each natural or legally adopted unmarried child less than age 18 dependent upon the police officer for support. The total child's disability benefit shall not exceed 10% of the police officer's salary at the time of removal from the police department payroll. The increase in child's disability benefit provided by this amendatory Act of the 92nd General Assembly applies beginning January 1, 2000 to all such benefits payable on or after that date, regardless of whether the disabled policeman is in active service on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act.
    The occupational disease disability benefit is payable during the period of disability until the police officer attains age 63 or compulsory retirement age, whichever occurs later; thereafter the police officer shall receive the benefits provided under the other provisions of this Article. If the police officer ceases to be disabled, the occupational disease disability benefit shall cease.
    The child's disability benefit is payable during the period of disability until the child attains age 18 or marries, whichever event occurs first, except that a benefit payable on account of a child under this Section shall not be reduced or terminated by reason of the child's attainment of age 18 if he or she is then dependent by reason of a physical or mental disability, but shall continue to be paid as long as the child's dependency and disability continue.

    Sec. 5-155. Ordinary disability benefit. A policeman less than age 63 who becomes disabled after the effective date as the result of any cause other than injury incurred in the performance of an act of duty, shall receive ordinary disability benefit during any period or periods of disability exceeding 30 days, for which he does not have a right to receive any part of his salary. Payment of such benefit shall not exceed, in the aggregate, throughout the total service of the policeman, a period equal to one-fourth of the service rendered to the city prior to the time he became disabled, nor more than 5 years. In computing such period of service, the time that the policeman received ordinary disability benefit shall not be included.
    When a disabled policeman becomes age 63 or would have been retired by operation of law, whichever is later, the disability benefit shall cease. The policeman, if still disabled, shall thereafter receive such annuity as is provided in accordance with other provisions of this Article.
    Ordinary disability benefit shall be 50% of the policeman's salary, as salary is defined in this Article (including the limitation in Section 5-238 if applicable), at the time disability occurs. Until September 1, 1969, before any payment, an amount equal to the sum ordinarily deducted from the policeman's salary for all annuity purposes for the period for which payment of ordinary disability benefit is made shall be deducted from such payment and credited as a deduction from salary for such period. Beginning September 1, 1969, the city shall also contribute all amounts ordinarily contributed by it for annuity purposes for the policeman as if he were in active discharge of his duties. Such sums so credited shall be regarded, for annuity and refund purposes, as sums contributed by the policeman.

In cases where the board requests an applicant to get a second opinion, the applicant must select a physician from a list of qualified licensed and practicing physicians who specialize in the various medical areas related to duty injuries and illnesses, as established by the board. The board may require other evidence of disability. A disabled policeman who receives a duty, occupational disease, or ordinary disability benefit shall be examined at least once a year by one or more physicians appointed by the board. When the disability ceases, the board shall discontinue payment of the benefit, and the policeman shall be returned to active service.

    (a) If a policeman who is granted duty or ordinary disability benefit refuses to submit to examination by a physician appointed by the board, he shall have no further right to receive the benefit.
    (b) A policeman who has withdrawn from service while disabled and entered upon annuity prior to the effective date, and who has thereafter been reinstated as a policeman, shall have no right to ordinary disability benefit in excess of the amount previously received unless he serves at least one year after such reinstatement. This provision shall apply throughout the duration of any disability incurred by the policeman within one year after his reinstatement resulting from any cause other than injury incurred in the performance of an act of duty.
    (c) Until the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 92nd General Assembly, a policeman who assumes regular employment for compensation, while in receipt of ordinary or duty disability benefits, shall not be entitled to receive any amount of such disability benefits which, when added to his compensation for such employment during disability, would exceed 150% of the rate of salary which would be paid to him if he were working in his regularly appointed civil service position as a policeman. The changes made to this Section by Public Act 90-766 are not limited to persons in service on or after the effective date of that Act.
    Beginning on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 92nd General Assembly, the reduction of disability benefits due to compensation for employment previously imposed under this subsection (c) no longer applies to any person receiving a disability benefit under this Article, without regard to whether the person is in service on or after that date. The removal of this limitation by this amendatory Act is not retroactive and does not entitle any person to the restoration of amounts previously reduced or withheld under this subsection.
    (d) Disability benefit shall not be paid for any part of time for which a disabled policeman shall receive any part of his salary.
    (e) Except as herein otherwise provided, disability benefit shall not be paid for any disability based upon or caused by any mental or physical defect which the policeman had at the time he entered the police service.
    (f) Disability benefit shall not be allowed to any policeman who re-enters the public service in any capacity where his salary is payable in whole or in part by taxes levied upon taxable property in the city in which this Article is in effect, or out of special revenues of any department of the city. The disability benefit shall be suspended during the period he is in the public service for compensation, and shall be resumed when he withdraws from such service.
    (g) Any disability benefit paid in violation of this Section or of this Article shall be construed to have been paid in error, and the amounts so paid shall be charged as a debit in the account of any person to whom the same was paid and shall be deducted from any moneys thereafter payable to such person out of this fund, or to the widow, heirs or estate of such person.

The annuity shall be computed as of the age of the policeman on the date of his withdrawal.

    Deductions from salary and contributions by the city for all purposes of this Article shall be made, and upon subsequent retirement new annuities based upon the amount then to his credit for annuity purposes and the entire term of his service shall be fixed for the policeman and his wife.
    If such policeman's wife, for whom annuity has been fixed prior to his re-entrance into service, has died or her marriage to such policeman has been dissolved or declared invalid before he re-entered service, no part, of any sum or sums to the credit of such policeman for widow's annuity or for widow's prior service annuity at the time annuity for such wife was fixed shall be credited to such policeman at the time of re-entry. No part of any such sum or sums shall be used to provide annuity for any wife of such policeman who is his wife at any time after his re-entry into service unless she was his wife at the time of his withdrawal.
    However, the payment of the pension or annuity shall continue if re-entry into service is for the purpose of serving on a part time basis as a street crossing guard.

    The city, in addition to the contributions otherwise made by it for annuity purposes under other provisions of this Article, shall make matching contributions concurrently with such salary deductions.
    Each such 1/2 of 1% deduction from salary and each such contribution by the city of 1/2 of 1% of salary shall be credited to the Automatic Increase Reserve, to be used to defray the cost of the annuity increase provided by this Section. Any balance in such reserve as of the beginning of each calendar year shall be credited with interest at the rate of 3% per annum.

    The salary deductions provided in this Section are not subject to refund, except to the policeman himself, in any case in which: (i) the policeman withdraws prior to qualification for minimum annuity or Tier 2 monthly retirement annuity and applies for refund, (ii) the policeman applies for an annuity of a type that is not subject to annual increases under this Section, or (iii) a term annuity becomes payable. In such cases, the total of such salary deductions shall be refunded to the policeman, without interest, and charged to the Automatic Increase Reserve.
    (d) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Article, the Tier 2 monthly retirement annuity of a person who first becomes a policeman under this Article on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 97th General Assembly shall be increased on the January 1 occurring either on or after (i) the attainment of age 60 or (ii) the first anniversary of the annuity start date, whichever is later. Each annual increase shall be calculated at 3% or one-half the annual unadjusted percentage increase (but not less than zero) in the consumer price index-u for the 12 months ending with the September preceding each November 1, whichever is less, of the originally granted retirement annuity. If the annual unadjusted percentage change in the consumer price index-u for a 12-month period ending in September is zero or, when compared with the preceding period, decreases, then the annuity shall not be increased.
    For the purposes of this subsection (d), "consumer price index-u" means the index published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the United States Department of Labor that measures the average change in prices of goods and services purchased by all urban consumers, United States city average, all items, 1982-84 = 100. The new amount resulting from each annual adjustment shall be determined by the Public Pension Division of the Department of Insurance and made available to the boards of the pension funds by November 1 of each year.

For purposes of this Section, the "Federal Poverty Level" shall be determined pursuant to the poverty guidelines updated periodically in the Federal Register by the United States Department of Health and Human Services under the authority of 42 U.S.C. 9902(2).
    The difference in amount between the original fixed and granted monthly annuity of any such policeman on the date of his retirement from the service and the monthly annuity provided for in the immediately preceding paragraph shall be paid as a supplement in the manner set forth in the immediately following paragraph.
    To defray the annual cost of the increases indicated in the preceding part of this Section, the annual interest income accruing from investments held by this Fund, exclusive of gains or losses on sales or exchanges of assets during the year, over and above 4% a year shall be used to the extent necessary and available to finance the cost of such increases for the following year and such amount shall be transferred as of the end of each year beginning with the year 1969 to a Fund account designated as the Supplementary Payment Reserve from the Interest and Investment Reserve set forth in Section 5-207.
    In the event the funds in the Supplementary Payment Reserve in any year arising from: (1) the interest income accruing in the preceding year above 4% a year and (2) the contributions by retired persons are insufficient to make the total payments to all persons entitled to the annuity specified in this Section and (3) any interest earnings over 4% a year beginning with the year 1969 which were not previously used to finance such increases and which were transferred to the Prior Service Annuity Reserve, may be used to the extent necessary and available to provide sufficient funds to finance such increases for the current year and such sums shall be transferred from the Prior Service Annuity Reserve. In the event the total money available in the Supplementary Payment Reserve from such sources are insufficient to make the total payments to all persons entitled to such increases for the year, a proportionate amount computed as the ratio of the money available to the total of the total payments specified for that year shall be paid to each person for that year.
    The Fund shall be obligated for the payment of the increases in annuity as provided for in this Section only to the extent that the assets for such purpose are available.

    Sec. 5-168. Financing.
    (a) Except as expressly provided in this Section, the city shall levy a tax annually upon all taxable property therein for the purpose of providing revenue for the fund.
    The tax shall be at a rate that will produce a sum which, when added to the amounts deducted from the policemen's salaries and the amounts deposited in accordance with subsection (g), is sufficient for the purposes of the fund.
    For the years 1968 and 1969, the city council shall levy a tax annually at a rate on the dollar of the assessed valuation of all taxable property that will produce, when extended, not to exceed $9,700,000. Beginning with the year 1970 and through 2014, the city council shall levy a tax annually at a rate on the dollar of the assessed valuation of all taxable property that will produce when extended an amount not to exceed the total amount of contributions by the policemen to the Fund made in the calendar year 2 years before the year for which the applicable annual tax is levied, multiplied by 1.40 for the tax levy year 1970; by 1.50 for the year 1971; by 1.65 for 1972; by 1.85 for 1973; by 1.90 for 1974; by 1.97 for 1975 through 1981; by 2.00 for 1982 and for each tax levy year through 2014. Beginning in tax levy year 2015, the city council shall levy a tax annually at a rate on the dollar of the assessed valuation of all taxable property that will produce when extended an annual amount that is equal to no less than the amount of the city's contribution in each of the following payment years: for 2016, $420,000,000; for 2017, $464,000,000; for 2018, $500,000,000; for 2019, $557,000,000; for 2020, $579,000,000.
    Beginning in tax levy year 2020, the city council shall levy a tax annually at a rate on the dollar of the assessed valuation of all taxable property that will produce when extended an annual amount that is equal to no less than (1) the normal cost to the Fund, plus (2) an annual amount sufficient to bring the total assets of the Fund up to 90% of the total actuarial liabilities of the Fund by the end of fiscal year 2055, as annually updated and determined by an enrolled actuary employed by the Illinois Department of Insurance or by an enrolled actuary retained by the Fund. In making these determinations, the required minimum employer contribution shall be calculated each year as a level percentage of payroll over the years remaining up to and including fiscal year 2055 and shall be determined under the entry age normal actuarial cost method. Beginning in payment year 2056, the city's total required contribution in that year and each year thereafter shall be an annual amount that is equal to no less than (1) the normal cost of the Fund, plus (2) the annual amount determined by an enrolled actuary employed by the Illinois Department of Insurance or by an enrolled actuary retained by the Fund to be equal to the amount, if any, needed to bring the total actuarial assets of the Fund up to 90% of the total actuarial liabilities of the Fund as of the end of the year, utilizing the entry age normal cost method as provided above.
    For the purposes of this subsection (a), contributions by the policeman to the Fund shall not include payments made by a policeman to establish credit under Section 5-214.2 of this Code.
    (a-5) For purposes of determining the required employer contribution to the Fund, the value of the Fund's assets shall be equal to the actuarial value of the Fund's assets, which shall be calculated as follows:
        (1) On March 30, 2011, the actuarial value of the
    
Fund's assets shall be equal to the market value of the assets as of that date.
        (2) In determining the actuarial value of the Fund's
    
assets for fiscal years after March 30, 2011, any actuarial gains or losses from investment return incurred in a fiscal year shall be recognized in equal annual amounts over the 5-year period following that fiscal year.
    (a-7) If the city fails to transmit to the Fund contributions required of it under this Article for more than 90 days after the payment of those contributions is due, the Fund shall, after giving notice to the city, certify to the State Comptroller the amounts of the delinquent payments, and the Comptroller must, beginning in fiscal year 2016, deduct and deposit into the Fund the certified amounts or a portion of those amounts from the following proportions of grants of State funds to the city:
        (1) in fiscal year 2016, one-third of the total
    
amount of any grants of State funds to the city;
        (2) in fiscal year 2017, two-thirds of the total
    
amount of any grants of State funds to the city; and
        (3) in fiscal year 2018 and each fiscal year
    
thereafter, the total amount of any grants of State funds to the city.
    The State Comptroller may not deduct from any grants of State funds to the city more than the amount of delinquent payments certified to the State Comptroller by the Fund.
    (b) The tax shall be levied and collected in like manner with the general taxes of the city, and is in addition to all other taxes which the city is now or may hereafter be authorized to levy upon all taxable property therein, and is exclusive of and in addition to the amount of tax the city is now or may hereafter be authorized to levy for general purposes under any law which may limit the amount of tax which the city may levy for general purposes. The county clerk of the county in which the city is located, in reducing tax levies under Section 8-3-1 of the Illinois Municipal Code, shall not consider the tax herein authorized as a part of the general tax levy for city purposes, and shall not include the tax in any limitation of the percent of the assessed valuation upon which taxes are required to be extended for the city.
    (c) On or before January 10 of each year, the board shall notify the city council of the requirement that the tax herein authorized be levied by the city council for that current year. The board shall compute the amounts necessary for the purposes of this fund to be credited to the reserves established and maintained within the fund; shall make an annual determination of the amount of the required city contributions; and shall certify the results thereof to the city council.
    As soon as any revenue derived from the tax is collected it shall be paid to the city treasurer of the city and shall be held by him for the benefit of the fund in accordance with this Article.
    (d) If the funds available are insufficient during any year to meet the requirements of this Article, the city may issue tax anticipation warrants against the tax levy for the current fiscal year.
    (e) The various sums, including interest, to be contributed by the city, shall be taken from the revenue derived from such tax or otherwise as expressly provided in this Section. Any moneys of the city derived from any source other than the tax herein authorized shall not be used for any purpose of the fund nor the cost of administration thereof, unless applied to make the deposit expressly authorized in this Section or the additional city contributions required under subsection (h).
    (f) If it is not possible or practicable for the city to make its contributions at the time that salary deductions are made, the city shall make such contributions as soon as possible thereafter, with interest thereon to the time it is made.
    (g) In lieu of levying all or a portion of the tax required under this Section in any year, the city may deposit with the city treasurer no later than March 1 of that year for the benefit of the fund, to be held in accordance with this Article, an amount that, together with the taxes levied under this Section for that year, is not less than the amount of the city contributions for that year as certified by the board to the city council. The deposit may be derived from any source legally available for that purpose, including, but not limited to, the proceeds of city borrowings. The making of a deposit shall satisfy fully the requirements of this Section for that year to the extent of the amounts so deposited. Amounts deposited under this subsection may be used by the fund for any of the purposes for which the proceeds of the tax levied under this Section may be used, including the payment of any amount that is otherwise required by this Article to be paid from the proceeds of that tax.
    (h) In addition to the contributions required under the other provisions of this Article, by November 1 of the following specified years, the city shall deposit with the city treasurer for the benefit of the fund, to be held and used in accordance with this Article, the following specified amounts: $6,300,000 in 1999; $5,880,000 in 2000; $5,460,000 in 2001; $5,040,000 in 2002; and $4,620,000 in 2003.
    The additional city contributions required under this subsection are intended to decrease the unfunded liability of the fund and shall not decrease the amount of the city contributions required under the other provisions of this Article. The additional city contributions made under this subsection may be used by the fund for any of its lawful purposes.
    (i) Any proceeds received by the city in relation to the operation of a casino or casinos within the city shall be expended by the city for payment to the Policemen's Annuity and Benefit Fund of Chicago to satisfy the city contribution obligation in any year.

The employer shall pay these employee contributions from the same source of funds which is used in paying salary to the employee. The employer may pick up these contributions by a reduction in the cash salary of the employee or by an offset against a future salary increase or by a combination of a reduction in salary and offset against a future salary increase. If employee contributions are picked up they shall be treated for all purposes of this Article 5, including Section 5-168, in the same manner and to the same extent as employee contributions made prior to the date picked up.

    (a) Beginning January 1, 2016, the city shall be obligated to contribute to the Fund in each fiscal year an amount not less than the amount determined annually under subsection (a) of Section 5-168 of this Code. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, if the city fails to pay the amount guaranteed under this Section on or before December 31 of the year in which such amount is due, the Fund may bring a mandamus action in the Circuit Court of Cook County to compel the city to make the required payment, irrespective of other remedies that may be available to the Fund. The obligations and causes of action created under this Section shall be in addition to any other right or remedy otherwise accorded by common law or State or federal law, and nothing in this Section shall be construed to deny, abrogate, impair, or waive any such common law or statutory right or remedy.
    (b) In ordering the city to make the required payment, the court may order a reasonable payment schedule to enable the city to make the required payment without significantly imperilling the public health, safety, or welfare. Any payments required to be made by the city pursuant to this Section are expressly subordinated to the payment of the principal, interest, premium, if any, and other payments on or related to any bonded debt obligation of the city, either currently outstanding or to be issued, for which the source of repayment or security thereon is derived directly or indirectly from any funds collected or received by the city. Payments on such bonded obligations include any statutory fund transfers or other prefunding mechanisms or formulas set forth, now or hereafter, in State law, city ordinance, or bond indentures, into debt service funds or accounts of the city related to such bonded obligations, consistent with the payment schedules associated with such obligations.

To defray the cost of the ordinary death benefit, each policeman in service on or after January 1, 1962, shall make contributions in addition to the contributions otherwise provided in this Article, in the amount of $2.50 per monthly period.

    Sec. 5-174. Contributions in case of certain employments in police department.
    (a) Whenever a policeman is assigned to a position in the police department other than the position he holds by certification and appointment as a result of competitive civil service examination, there shall be deducted from his salary the amount which would have been deducted had he continued in his civil service position. If such deductions are not made, the policeman may pay such amount direct to the fund and shall be credited with the corresponding city contributions, to the end that he may retain all rights he otherwise would have had were his employment continuous in his civil service position; provided, that any such amount not so deducted from his salary nor paid by him shall be deducted from the earliest possible and practicable payment of salary due and payable to him, or from any annuity, benefit or refund payable to him or on his account. The policeman shall receive credit for such employment as service for all purposes of this Article.
    (b) From and after January 1, 1970, in lieu of the provisions of the preceding paragraph (a) of this Section, any policeman serving in a non-civil service position in the police department shall have salary deductions made for age and service annuity and widow's annuity on salary as defined in Section 5-114(e).
    Any active policeman serving in a non-civil service position on the effective date of this amendatory Act may elect, prior to January 1, 1970, to contribute directly to the fund for age and service and widow's annuity on salary received in excess of that provided for in his civil service rank for police service rendered in a non-civil service position prior to the operative date of his election. Such election shall be exercised prior to January 1, 1974, by a policeman in service on such effective date or within 6 months prior to such date. Any policeman in service not serving in a non-civil service position on the effective date of this amendatory Act who is subsequently assigned and serving in a non-civil service position may make like election within 6 months after such assignment. Contributions for such past service shall include interest at the applicable rate to the end that the contributions shall equal the amount that would have been credited to the policeman had deductions been made from such excess salary for such service. For such contributions the policeman shall be credited with the corresponding city contributions with interest for all annuity purposes at the rates in effect at the time the service was rendered.
    Contributions for past service, if elected, shall be made for the entire period of service and for the total amount of the excess salary and no credit shall be granted or payment permitted for any part of such service or excess salary. Payment of contributions on such past service shall be completed within 3 years of the date of election and in any event before death or retirement. If not paid in full within such period, or before death, no credit shall be granted thereon, and the sums so paid, with interest at the rate of 1 1/2% per year, compounded annually, shall be refunded to the policeman, or his surviving widow or children, or if there are no such survivors, then in accordance with Section 5-167, provided, however, that if the repayment has not been made in full before death, his widow shall have the option of completing such payment within 60 days from the date of his death.
    A policeman assigned to a non-civil service position within 3 years of the date of his reaching compulsory retirement age or within 3 years of retirement at his own option, whichever is earlier, shall not qualify for the benefits authorized herein. The limitation contained in this paragraph shall not apply to a policeman assigned to a non-civil service position whose retirement from active service is caused by duty disability. Beginning January 1, 2000, the limitation contained in this paragraph shall not apply to a policeman assigned to a non-civil service position with the title of Captain. A policeman who has made contributions as provided by this Section but who fails to qualify for the benefits due to the limitation of this paragraph is entitled to refund of said contributions, upon application therefor, according to the provisions of Section 5-163(f).
    In no event shall the provisions of this or any other Section of this Article, allowing payment for or granting credit on salary received in excess of that provided for his civil service rank or position be applicable in the case of any former policeman who is receiving annuity from this fund who subsequently re-enters service as a policeman.

    Each city shall contribute annually, from the sum produced by the tax levy herein authorized, all sums required for the purposes of this Article other than those stated in this Section. The balance of the sum produced by the tax levy shall be applied: (a) For the payment of prior service annuities and widow's prior service annuities, and all annuities, pensions and benefits which have been or which shall be allowed under "An Act to provide for the setting apart, formation and disbursements of a police pension fund in cities having a population exceeding two hundred thousand inhabitants", approved June 29, 1915, as amended; also for the purpose of paying that part of any annuity for which reserves from contributions by the policeman and the city are not provided under this Article, including that part of the annuity described in Section 5-127, 5-132, 5-136, 5-145, and 5-167 and 5-167.4 for which monies are not provided in this Article, and to make possible the transfer of reserves from the investment and interest reserve to other reserves of the fund, as provided in this Article.
    (b) Amounts contributed by the city for the purposes of this section shall be credited to the prior service annuity reserve. When the balance of that reserve equals the liabilities chargeable thereto (including in addition to all other liabilities of such reserve, the present value, according to the American Experience Table of Mortality, and interest at the rate of 4% per annum, or according to the Combined Annuity Mortality Table and interest at the rate of 4% per annum, whichever is applicable, of all annuities present or prospective, chargeable to the prior service annuity reserve) the city shall cease to contribute the sum no longer required for the purposes indicated in paragraph (a) of this section; provided, if at any time the balance of the investment and interest reserve is not sufficient to permit a transfer from such reserve to any other reserve of the fund, in accordance with the provisions of this Article, the city shall, as soon as possible and practicable thereafter, contribute sums sufficient to make possible such transfer.
    (c) If by reason of annexation of territory and the employment by the city of any policeman then employed in the annexed territory, after the city has ceased to make contributions under this section, contributions to provide prior service and widow's prior service annuity for such policeman become necessary for such purposes, the city shall, as soon as possible and practicable thereafter, contribute sums sufficient to provide such annuities.

the county in which such city is principally located or for the State of Illinois or for the federal government, on leave of absence from the department of police, or while performing investigative work for the department as a civilian employee of the department.
        (d) While on leave of absence from the police
    
department of the city and serving as the chief of police of a police department outside the city.
    No credit shall be granted in this fund, however, for this service if the policeman has credit therefor in any other annuity and benefit fund, or unless he contributes to this fund the amount he would have contributed with interest had he remained an active member of the police department in the position he occupied as a result of a civil service competitive examination, certification and appointment by the Civil Service Board; or in the case of a city operating under the provisions of a personnel ordinance the position he occupied as a result of a personnel ordinance competitive examination certification and appointment under the authority of a Municipal Personnel ordinance.

    (40 ILCS 5/5-218) (from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 5-218)
    Sec. 5-218. Annuities, etc. - Exempt. All pensions, annuities, refunds or disability benefits granted under this Article, and every portion thereof, are exempt from attachment or garnishment process and shall not be seized, taken, subjected to, detained or levied upon by virtue of any judgment, or any process or proceeding whatsoever issued out of or by any court for the payment and satisfaction in whole or in part of any debt, damage, claim, demand, or judgment against a pensioner, annuitant, refund applicant or other beneficiary hereunder.
    No pensioner, annuitant, refund applicant or disability beneficiary has a right to transfer or assign his or her pension, annuity, refund or disability benefit or any part thereof by mortgage or otherwise, except that a pensioner or annuitant may direct in writing that payment be made monthly, in a fixed amount, for hospitalization purposes.
    The board, in its discretion, may pay to the wife or unmarried minor child of an annuitant, pensioner, refund applicant or disability beneficiary, such amount out of the annuity, pension, refund or disability benefit as a court may order, or such amount as the board may consider necessary for the support of such wife or child (or both) in the event of his disappearance or unexplained absence or his failure to support his wife or child, or both.
    The board may also withhold from any future annuity, pension, refund or disability benefit payments such amount, or amounts, as it may, in its discretion, set for the purpose of repayment of any moneys paid to an annuitant, pensioner, refund applicant or disability beneficiary through misrepresentation, fraud or error; provided that when any pension or annuity is claimed to have been paid erroneously to a policeman who retired prior to the effective date and the policeman has subsequently re-entered the service and resumed contributions to the fund, no part of any future annuity or disability benefit payable to him when he again becomes separated from the service shall be retained or withheld for repayment into the fund of any deficiency due from him on account of any pension or annuity prior to such re-entry if such original pension or annuity was paid without any misrepresentation by the policeman as to his age or period of service in the procuring of such prior pension. Any authorized action taken by the board shall relieve and release the board and the fund from any liability for any moneys retained or paid out as herein provided.
    Whenever money is payable to a minor or to a person adjudged to be under legal disability to manage or care for his own estate, the board may, in its discretion when to the apparent interest of the minor or person under legal disability, waive guardianship proceedings and pay such money to the person providing for or caring for the minor, and to the wife, parent or blood relative providing or caring for the person under legal disability.
    Whenever a pensioner, annuitant, refund applicant or disability beneficiary disappears or his whereabouts are unknown and it cannot be ascertained whether or not he is living, there shall be paid to his wife or his children, or both, under this section, such amount only as will not be in excess of the amount which would be payable in the event the pensioner, annuitant, refund applicant or disability beneficiary had died on the date of his disappearance; and, in the event of his subsequent return, or upon satisfactory proof of his being alive, the amount theretofore paid shall be charged against any moneys payable to him under any of the provisions of this Article to the same effect as though the payment to his wife or children, or both, had been an allowance to her or them out of the moneys payable to him as such pensioner, annuitant, refund applicant or disability beneficiary.

    (40 ILCS 5/5-219) (from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 5-219)
    Sec. 5-219. Park Policemen's Annuity Fund Act superseded. From January 1, 1960, the fund herein provided for shall supersede and take the place of the Park Policemen's Annuity Fund established under the Park Policemen's Annuity Act. The Park Policemen's Annuity Fund as of such date shall be merged into and become a part of the fund herein provided for. The fund shall be construed to be a continuation of such Park Policemen's Annuity Fund and all monies, securities, properties and any and all other assets of such annuity and benefit fund, shall, on the first day of January, 1960, be transferred by the retirement board of the Park Policemen's Annuity Fund to the board of the fund herein provided for. The board established under this Article shall receive the aforesaid assets which shall be allocated to the several reserves created by this Article for the purposes thereof. All participants of the superseded fund shall have the same rights and benefits and be subject to the same duties and responsibilities as if they had originally been participants of this fund from the first date of employment as members of the active service in the police department of any park district or as a retirement board employee of such superseded fund.
    All annuities, pensions and other benefits allowed prior to the first day of January, 1960, by the retirement board of such superseded Park Policemen's Annuity Fund shall thereafter be assumed and paid from this fund according to the law under which such annuities, pensions or other benefits were allowed.
    All claims for any annuity, pension or other benefit from such Park Policemen's Annuity Fund pending or ungranted on January 1, 1960, shall be allowed or disallowed by the board established under this Article according to the provisions of the Park Policemen's Annuity Act, and those which are allowed shall be paid from the fund herein provided for; provided, that whenever any claim shall hereafter be made or proceedings at law instituted under any Act in effect prior to January 1, 1960, no amount of annuities for any prior period shall be allowed or paid for any period of time greater than a period of one year prior to the date of the filing of the claim or the date of the institution of such legal proceedings, the intent being that any annuity or benefit hereafter granted or ordered under any such superseded Act shall be so granted or ordered as of the date not more than one year prior to the date of the filing of the claim for such annuity or benefit or of the institution of the legal proceedings thereof.
    The proceeds of taxes levied for the year 1959 and prior years pursuant to Section 9 of the Park Policemen's Annuity Act, including delinquent and uncollected taxes, shall, when collected, be paid by the county treasurer into the fund herein provided for.
    If a retirement board employee for the superseded Park Policemen's Annuity Fund has not applied for or received a refund of his contributions prior to January 1, 1960, under Section 37 of the Park Policemen's Annuity Act, he may thereafter apply for and receive such refund from the fund created by this Article. If such refunds are not applied for after January 1, 1960, and any such retirement board employee is employed by a governmental unit which has accepted the provisions of the "Retirement Systems Reciprocal Act", approved July 11, 1955, as amended, the amount of such employee's and park district contributions to his credit which have been transferred to the fund established by this Article shall, upon request of the retirement board of the fund in which the employee is a participant, or upon request of the employee, be transferred by the board to the retirement system in which the employee is a participant. The service, earnings and contributions credits earned by the employee in the superseded Park Policemen's Annuity Fund shall be preserved, and, in the application of the "Retirement Systems Reciprocal Act", the retirement system to which such contributions have been transferred shall grant credit for the service, earnings and contributions and consider such credits in calculating all benefits. If any such employee has accepted a refund of his contributions, upon subsequent employment by a governmental unit which has accepted the provisions of the "Retirement Systems Reciprocal Act", he may reinstate his credits earned in the superseded Park Policemen's Annuity Fund by repayment to the retirement fund in which he is a participant in the manner and subject to the conditions of the "Retirement Systems Reciprocal Act", and, in such case, the retirement system which has received such repayment shall grant credit for the service, earnings and contributions credited by such superseded fund and consider such credits in calculating all benefits.
    All rights, credits and equities earned under the provisions of the Park Policemen's Annuity Fund shall be preserved and shall not be affected or impaired by the supersession of said fund by the city policemen's annuity fund. Such rights, credits and equities shall be considered to have accrued and been earned under the provisions of this Article.
