Illinois Pension Laws Commission - RG 532 | Illinois State Archives

Name: Illinois Pension Laws Commission - RG 532

Historical Note:

The Illinois Pension Laws Commission was created in 1916. It was authorized to investigate the operations and fiscal stability of the fifteen public employee pension systems which then existed in the state, examine the effects of prior pension legislation in Illinois, research pension laws and operations in other states and countries, and prepare a report of their findings for the General Assembly. The commission was also empowered to seek legal and clerical assistance from the Department of Insurance and other state agencies, and compel the preparation of financial reports on public pension accounts. The Governor appointed four members to the commission, including a pension system representative, an actuary, a private citizen, and an attorney who served as chairman (L. 1916, pp. 79-80). The commission’s life was extended by the General Assembly in 1917, and its final report was issued in 1919 at which time it expired (L. 1917, pp. 641-642).

This commission is unrelated to the Illinois Public Employees Pension Laws Commission which existed from 1963-1984 (RG 569).
