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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

In addition to any powers that it may
exercise under the Government Salary Withholding Act, the township board may
provide, for the benefit of the township's employees, officials,
or retired officials and their
dependents, group life, health, accident, hospital, or dental insurance or any
combination of those types of insurance. The insurance may include provision
for employees, officials, retired officials, and their dependents who rely
on treatment by prayer
or spiritual means alone for healing in accordance with the tenets and practice
of a well recognized religious denomination. The township board may provide
for payment by the township of all or a portion of the premium or charge for
the insurance for covered persons, except that the township may not pay all
or a portion of the premium or charge for the insurance for retired
officials and their dependents. If the township board undertakes a plan
under which the township does not pay the entire amount of premiums or charges
for the insurance, the board may provide for withholding and deducting from the
compensation of its employees or officers amounts required to pay the
balance of the premiums or charges.
