          PENSION NOTE (Illinois Pension Laws Commission)                      
          An actuarial cost estimate is not available. The effect of           
          HB 962 on individual employers will vary according to the num-       
          ber of current and future duty disabilitants. Currently, duty        
          disability benefits for SLEP and regular employees of IMRF are       
          equal to 50% of the salary received at the time of disability.       
          HB 962 provides a duty disability benefit of 65% of salary for       
          SLEP employees, but does not change the duty disability amount       
          for regular IMRF members.
