SB 1687 extends the effective date of Section 15-139.5 (Return to work restrictions created by PA 97-968) from August 1, 2013 to August 1, 2014. SB 1687 also provides that such provisions of Public Act 97-968 shall not apply to SURS annuitants that are “status employees” under the Civil Service system, and eliminates the “18 paid week condition” of Public Act 97-968. For review, PA 97-968 tightens up the SURS return to work provisions so that if a SURS-covered employer employs a SURS annuitant under certain conditions, the SURS-covered employer is to a pay a penalty to SURS.
The Final Action Deadline was extended to May 31, 2013. On May 27, 2013, the House Committee Amendment No. 1 was Referred to the Executive Committee.
