(40 ILCS 5/12-195)
    Sec. 12-195. Application and expiration of new benefit increases.
    (a) As used in this Section, "new benefit increase" means an increase in the amount of any benefit provided under this Article, or an expansion of the conditions of eligibility for any benefit under this Article, that results from an amendment to this Code that takes effect after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 98th General Assembly.
    (b) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Code or any subsequent amendment to this Code, every new benefit increase is subject to this Section and shall be deemed to be granted only in conformance with and contingent upon compliance with the provisions of this Section.
    (c) The Public Act enacting a new benefit increase must identify and provide for payment to the Fund of additional funding at least sufficient to fund the resulting annual increase in cost to the Fund as it accrues.
    Every new benefit increase is contingent upon the General Assembly providing the additional funding required under this subsection (c). The State Actuary shall analyze whether adequate additional funding has been provided for the new benefit increase. A new benefit increase created by a Public Act that does not include the additional funding required under this subsection (c) is null and void. If the State Actuary determines that the additional funding provided for a new benefit increase under this subsection (c) is or has become inadequate, it may so certify to the Governor and the State Comptroller and, in the absence of corrective action by the General Assembly, the new benefit increase shall expire at the end of the fiscal year in which the certification is made.
