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.

    (305 ILCS 5/12-4.7f)
    Sec. 12-4.7f. Death records information. At least once each calendar month, the Department of Human Services shall cross-reference its roster of public aid recipients with the death records information from the Department of Public Health residing on the Electronic Data Warehouse at the Department of Healthcare and Family Services. A public aid recipient who is found to have a death record shall be subject to an immediate cancelation of his or her public aid benefits, including the deactivation of his or her LINK card, in instances where there are no other individuals receiving benefits in that assistance unit and upon certification that the identity of the public aid recipient matches the identity of the person named in the death certificate. As used in this Section, "LINK card" means the electronic benefits transfer card issued by the Department of Human Services for the purpose of enabling a user of the card to obtain Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits or cash.
