Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Downstate Police and Downstate Firefighter Articles of the Illinois Pension Code. Allows the corporate authorities of a municipality, by resolution or ordinance, to dissolve the downstate police or firefighter pension funds established by the municipality if an independent auditor has certified to the authorities that the funds have no liabilities, participants, or beneficiaries entitled to benefits. Requires the corporate authorities of the municipality to reestablish those funds if a police officer or firefighter of the municipality seeks to establish service credit in the fund or if reestablishment of the fund is required upon a former police officer or firefighter's reinstatement of creditable service. Suspends the duty of the corporate authorities of a municipality to establish and administer a downstate police or firefighter pension fund while the fund is dissolved. Requires the Public Pension Division of the Department of Insurance to adopt corresponding procedural rules.
