Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) Article of the Illinois Pension Code. Provides that an employee who first enters service on or after the January 1, 2013 and becomes disabled shall, on and after the 31st day of disability (rather than the 31st day after which he or she last worked), be entitled to ordinary disability benefits during the remainder of that disability (instead of only after having exhausted his or her sick leave). Provides that if employee contributions in the account of an employee who enters service after the effective date of the amendatory Act have not, before his or her death and the death of his or her spouse, been paid as a retirement, spouse's, or child's annuity, then a refund shall be paid in an amount equal to the excess of the contributions over the amounts paid on those annuities, without interest. Specifies that if there are surviving children of the employee or annuitant who are eligible for a child's annuity, then that refund may not be paid until the youngest eligible child reaches age 23.
