Illinois Compiled Statutes

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.

625 ILCS 5/7-501

    (625 ILCS 5/7-501) (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 7-501)
    Sec. 7-501. Assigned Risk Plans. If, on or before January 1, 1946, every insurance carrier authorized to write automobile bodily injury liability insurance in this State shall not subscribe to an assigned risk plan approved by the Director of Insurance, providing that no carrier may withdraw therefrom after approval of the Director, the Director of Insurance shall, when he finds that an application for bodily injury or property damage insurance by a risk, which may become subject to this Act or is a local public entity subject to the Local Governmental and Governmental Employees Tort Immunity Act, and in good faith is entitled to such insurance, has been rejected by 3 insurance carriers, designate an insurance carrier which shall be obligated to issue forthwith its usual form of policy providing such insurance for such risk. The Director shall make equitable distribution of such assignments among insurance carriers proportionate, so far as practicable, by premiums to the respective net direct automobile bodily injury premium writings of the carriers authorized to do business in this State. The Director of Insurance shall establish rules and regulations for the administration of the provisions of this Section.
    If any carrier refuses or neglects to comply with the provisions of this Section or with any lawful order or ruling made by the Director of Insurance pursuant to this Section, the Director may, after notice and hearing, suspend the license of such carrier to transact any insurance business in this State until such carrier shall have complied with such order. The provisions of the Administrative Review Law, and all amendments and modifications thereof, and the rules adopted pursuant thereto, shall apply to and govern all proceedings for the judicial review of final administrative decisions of the Director of Insurance hereunder.

625 ILCS 5/7-502

    (625 ILCS 5/7-502) (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 7-502)
    Sec. 7-502. Self-insurers. Any person in whose name more than 25 motor vehicles are registered may qualify as a self-insurer by obtaining a certificate of self-insurance issued by the Director of the Department of Insurance as provided in this Section.
    The Director may, in his discretion, upon the application of such a person, issue a certificate of self-insurance when he is satisfied that such person is possessed and will continue to be possessed of ability to pay judgment obtained against such person.
    Upon not less than 5 days' notice, and a hearing pursuant to such notice, the Director may upon reasonable grounds cancel a certificate of self-insurance. Failure to pay any judgment against any person covered by such certificate of self-insurance and arising out of any crash in which a motor vehicle covered by such certificate of self-insurance has been involved within 30 days after such judgment shall have become final shall constitute a reasonable ground for the cancellation of a certificate of self-insurance.

    Sec. 7-503. Unclaimed Security Deposits. During July, annually, the Secretary shall compile a list of all securities on deposit, pursuant to this Article, for more than 3 years and concerning which he has received no notice as to the pendency of any judicial proceeding that could affect the disposition thereof. Thereupon, he shall promptly send a notice to the last known address of each depositor advising him that his deposit will be subject to escheat to the State of Illinois if not claimed within 30 days after the mailing date of such notice. At the expiration of such time, the Secretary of State shall file with the State Treasurer an order directing the transfer of such deposit to the general revenue fund in the State Treasury. Upon receipt of such order, the State Treasurer shall make such transfer, after converting to cash any other type of security. Thereafter any person having a legal claim against such deposit may enforce it by appropriate proceedings in the Court of Claims subject to the limitations prescribed for such Court. At the expiration of such limitation period such deposit shall escheat to the State of Illinois.
