Donald Snyder, former director of the Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC), forfeited his right to pension benefits when he was convicted of engaging in “a scheme to defraud the people of the state of Illinois,” Attorney General Lisa Madigan said.
Madigan made the recommendation in response to a request from Tim Blair, acting executive secretary of the State Employees’ Retirement System. If the retirement system board accepts her recommendation, Snyder will receive only a refund of the payments he made into the state pension system.
During his tenure as director from January 1999 to February 2003, Snyder accepted $50,000 in bribes from lobbyists in exchange for state contracts. He was on the state payroll for 16 years.
The Illinois Pension Code provides for possible forfeiture of pension rights due to felony convictions.
