Amends the Cook County Article of the Illinois Pension Code. Provides that if a person certified by a medical doctor to be under legal disability (i) has no spouse, blood relative, or other person providing or caring for him or her, (ii) has no guardian of his or her estate, and (iii) is confined to a Medicare approved, State certified nursing home or to a publicly owned and operated nursing home, hospital, or mental institution, the Board may pay any benefit due that person to the nursing home, hospital, or mental institution, to be used for the sole benefit of the person under legal disability. Provides that the payment to a person, nursing home, hospital, or mental institution for the benefit of a minor or person under legal disability shall be an absolute discharge of the Fund's liability with respect to the amount so paid. Requires any person, nursing home, hospital, or mental institution accepting that payment to notify the Fund of the death or any other relevant change in the status of the minor or person under legal disability. Effective immediately.
