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.

Compensation of officials.
(1) Directors and committee members may
receive reasonable compensation for their service as such, the amount of which shall be set by the board of directors, in accordance with written policies and procedures established by the board of directors. If the Department determines the payment of director or committee member compensation, or both, creates a safety and soundness issue for a credit union, the Department shall utilize the standards set forth in 38 Ill. Adm. Code 190.25 and supplemental guidelines to address and resolve the issue. An enforcement action taken pursuant to 38 Ill. Adm. Code 190.25 and guidelines and specified by the Act shall be used to reduce or suspend the compensation paid to the directors and committee members.

The disclosure shall contain: (i) the amount paid to each director and (ii) the amount paid to the directors as a group. "Compensation" does not include any of the expenses described in subsections (2) and (3) of this Section.

reasonable life, health,
accident, and similar insurance protection benefits for directors and committee members.
