PEN CD-CHGO FIRE-80% MAXIMUM                                               

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Chicago Firefighter Article of  the  Illinois  Pension      
   Code  to  increase  the  maximum  retirement  annuity, duty disability      
   benefit, and duty death benefit from 75% to 80% of salary.  Also makes

          increase the accrued liability of the Chicago Firefighters'          
          Fund by an estimated $15.8 million. The level dollar annual          
          payment needed to amortize the estimated increase in unfunded        
          liability over 40 years is $1.3 million. The estimated annual        
          increase in normal cost is $1.6 million, or 0.58% of payroll.        
          Therefore, the estimated increase in total annual cost is            
          $2.9 million, or 1.07% of payroll. As annual normal cost in-
