The Illinois Pension Code is amended by 6 changing Sections 3-110, 3-111, 3-111.1, 3-112, 3-113.1, 7 3-114.1, 3-114.2, 3-114.3, 3-114.6, and 3-125.1 as follows: 8 (40 ILCS 5/3-110) (from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 3-110) 9 Sec. 3-110. Creditable service. 10 (a) "Creditable service" is the time served by a police 11 officer as a member of a regularly constituted police force 12 of a municipality. In computing creditable service furloughs 13 without pay exceeding 30 days shall not be counted, but all 14 leaves of absence for illness or accident, regardless of 15 length, and all periods of disability retirement for which a 16 police officer has received no disability pension payments 17 under this Article shall be counted. 18 (a-5) Up to 3 years of time during which the police 19 officer receives a disability pension under Section 3-114.1, 20 3-114.2, 3-114.3, or 3-114.6 shall be counted as creditable 21 service, provided that (i) the police officer returns to 22 active service after the disability for a period at least 23 equal to the period for which credit is to be established and 24 (ii) the police officer makes contributions to the fund based 25 on the rates specified in Section 3-125.1 and the salary upon 26 which the disability pension is based. These contributions 27 may be paid at any time prior to the commencement of a 28 retirement pension. The police officer may, but need not, 29 elect to have the contributions deducted from the disability 30 pension or to pay them in installments on a schedule approved 31 by the board. If not deducted from the disability pension, -2- LRB9109338EGfg 1 the contributions shall include interest at the rate of 6% 2 per year, compounded annually, from the date for which 3 service credit is being established to the date of payment. 4 If contributions are paid under this subsection (a-5) in 5 excess of those needed to establish the credit, the excess 6 shall be refunded. This subsection (a-5) applies to persons 7 receiving a disability pension under Section 3-114.1, 8 3-114.2, 3-114.3, or 3-114.6 on the effective date of this 9 amendatory Act of the 91st General Assembly, as well as 10 persons who begin to receive such a disability pension after 11 that date. 12 (b) Creditable service includes all periods of service 13 in the military, naval or air forces of the United States 14 entered upon while an active police officer of a 15 municipality, provided that upon applying for a permanent 16 pension, and in accordance with the rules of the board, the 17 police officer pays into the fund the amount the officer 18 would have contributed if he or she had been a regular 19 contributor during such period, to the extent that the 20 municipality which the police officer served has not made 21 such contributions in the officer's behalf. The total amount 22 of such creditable service shall not exceed 5 years, except 23 that any police officer who on July 1, 1973 had more than 5 24 years of such creditable service shall receive the total 25 amount thereof. 26 (c) Creditable service also includes service rendered by 27 a police officer while on leave of absence from a police 28 department to serve as an executive of an organization whose 29 membership consists of members of a police department, 30 subject to the following conditions: (i) the police officer 31 is a participant of a fund established under this Article 32 with at least 10 years of service as a police officer; (ii) 33 the police officer received no credit for such service under 34 any other retirement system, pension fund, or annuity and -3- LRB9109338EGfg 1 benefit fund included in this Code; (iii) pursuant to the 2 rules of the board the police officer pays to the fund the 3 amount he or she would have contributed had the officer been 4 an active member of the police department; and (iv) the 5 organization pays a contribution equal to the municipality's 6 normal cost for that period of service. 7 (d)(1) Creditable service also includes periods of 8 service originally established in another police pension fund 9 under this Article or in the Fund established under Article 7 10 of this Code for which (i) the contributions have been 11 transferred under Section 3-110.7 or Section 7-139.9 and (ii) 12 any additional contribution required under paragraph (2) of 13 this subsection has been paid in full in accordance with the 14 requirements of this subsection (d). 15 (2) If the board of the pension fund to which creditable 16 service and related contributions are transferred under 17 Section 3-110.7 or 7-139.9 determines that the amount 18 transferred is less than the true cost to the pension fund of 19 allowing that creditable service to be established, then in 20 order to establish that creditable service the police officer 21 must pay to the pension fund, within the payment period 22 specified in paragraph (3) of this subsection, an additional 23 contribution equal to the difference, as determined by the 24 board in accordance with the rules and procedures adopted 25 under paragraph (6) of this subsection. 26 (3) Except as provided in paragraph (4), the additional 27 contribution must be paid to the board (i) within 5 years 28 from the date of the transfer of contributions under Section 29 3-110.7 or 7-139.9 and (ii) before the police officer 30 terminates service with the fund. The additional 31 contribution may be paid in a lump sum or in accordance with 32 a schedule of installment payments authorized by the board. 33 (4) If the police officer dies in service before payment 34 in full has been made and before the expiration of the 5-year -4- LRB9109338EGfg 1 payment period, the surviving spouse of the officer may elect 2 to pay the unpaid amount on the officer's behalf within 6 3 months after the date of death, in which case the creditable 4 service shall be granted as though the deceased police 5 officer had paid the remaining balance on the day before the 6 date of death. 7 (5) If the additional contribution is not paid in full 8 within the required time, the creditable service shall not be 9 granted and the police officer (or the officer's surviving 10 spouse or estate) shall be entitled to receive a refund of 11 (i) any partial payment of the additional contribution that 12 has been made by the police officer and (ii) those portions 13 of the amounts transferred under subdivision (a)(1) of 14 Section 3-110.7 or subdivisions (a)(1) and (a)(3) of Section 15 7-139.9 that represent employee contributions paid by the 16 police officer (but not the accumulated interest on those 17 contributions) and interest paid by the police officer to the 18 prior pension fund in order to reinstate service terminated 19 by acceptance of a refund. 20 Transferred credit that is not granted due to failure to 21 pay the additional contribution within the required time is 22 lost; it may not be transferred to another pension fund and 23 may not be reinstated in the pension fund from which it was 24 transferred. 25 (6) The Public Employee Pension Fund Division of the 26 Department of Insurance shall establish by rule the manner of 27 making the calculation required under paragraph (2) of this 28 subsection, taking into account the appropriate actuarial 29 assumptions; the police officer's service, age, and salary 30 history; the level of funding of the pension fund to which 31 the credits are being transferred; and any other factors that 32 the Division determines to be relevant. The rules may 33 require that all calculations made under paragraph (2) be 34 reported to the Division by the board performing the -5- LRB9109338EGfg 1 calculation, together with documentation of the creditable 2 service to be transferred, the amounts of contributions and 3 interest to be transferred, the manner in which the 4 calculation was performed, the numbers relied upon in making 5 the calculation, the results of the calculation, and any 6 other information the Division may deem useful. 7 (Source: P.A. 89-52, eff. 6-30-95; 90-460, eff. 8-17-97.) 8 (40 ILCS 5/3-111) (from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 3-111) 9 Sec. 3-111.

If the examination discloses 10 impairment of the heart, lungs, or respiratory tract, or the 11 existence of cancer, the officer shall not be entitled to an 12 occupational disease disability pension under this Section 13 unless and until a subsequent examination reveals no such 14 impairment or cancer. 15 The occupational disease disability pension shall be 16 equal to the greater of 65% of the salary attached to the 17 rank held by the officer at the time of his or her removal 18 from the municipality's department payroll or (2) the 19 retirement pension that the police officer would be eligible 20 to receive if he or she retired (but not including any 21 automatic annual increase in that retirement pension). 22 The occupational disease disability pension is payable to 23 the officer during the period of the disability.
