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 5/24-107

    (40 ILCS 5/24-107) (from Ch. 108 1/2, par. 24-107)
    Sec. 24-107. Local government plans.
    (a) Any unit of local government or school district may establish for its employees a deferred compensation program. Participation shall be by written agreement between each employee and the legislative authority of the unit of local government or school district providing for the deferral of such compensation and the subsequent investment and administration of such funds.
    (b) Any unit of local government may establish an employer-funded money purchase retirement plan for those of its full time employees who are not eligible to participate in any pension fund or retirement system established under Articles 2 through 18 of this Code. Contributions to the plan shall be made by the unit of local government only from general purpose funds not derived from real property taxes imposed by the unit, at a rate to be determined from time to time by the unit of local government. However, the rate of employer contribution shall be (i) the same for all employees participating in the plan, and (ii) not more than 10% of the employee's salary.
    Any benefits accruing to the participants in a retirement plan established under this subsection shall be protected from impairment in accordance with Article XIII, Section 5 of the Illinois Constitution. However, the unit of local government establishing such a plan may terminate it at any time, unless it has otherwise contractually agreed with its participating employees.
    (c) The agency or department designated by the unit of local government or school district to establish and administer a plan or program authorized under subsection (a) or (b) of this Section may invest the assets of the plan in investments deemed appropriate by the agency or department, including but not limited to life insurance or annuity contracts, and share or share certificate accounts of State or federal credit unions, the accounts of which are insured as required by the Illinois Credit Union Act or the Federal Credit Union Act, whichever is applicable. The payment of employer contributions to a retirement plan established under subsection (b), and investment and payment to a participant of deferred compensation and income or gain thereon, if any, shall not be construed to be prohibited uses of the general assets of the unit of local government or school district.
    This Section does not limit the power or authority of any unit of local government, school district or any institution supported in whole or in part by public funds to establish and administer any other deferred compensation plans that may be authorized by law and deemed appropriate by the officials of such subdivisions or institutions.
