Amends the State Employee, State Universities, and Downstate Teacher Articles of the Illinois Pension Code. Requires each System to implement an accelerated pension benefit payment option for Tier 1 members who have submitted an application for a retirement annuity and meet other requirements. Requires each System to offer an eligible Tier 1 member the opportunity to irrevocably elect to have his or her automatic annual increases in retirement annuity calculated using the Tier 2 formula in exchange for an accelerated pension benefit payment equal to 70% of the difference of the present value of the automatic annual increases in the Tier 1 member's retirement annuity using the formula applicable to the Tier 1 member and the present value of the automatic annual increases in the Tier 1 member's retirement annuity using the Tier 2 formula. Contains provisions concerning definitions; return to active service; depositing the payments into other qualified retirement plans; qualified plan status; and rulemaking. Excludes the amendatory Act from the definition of "new benefit increase". Adds provisions defining "Tier 1 member" and repeals the definitions of "Tier 1 member" added by Public Act 98-599, which has been held unconstitutional. Effective immediately.
