When Will My Benefits Begin And How Much Will They Be?

Medical benefits will commence as soon as you inform your employer of your work related injury.

Temporary Total Disability (TTD) benefits should commence within 14 days from the date the employer received notice of the work related injury. TTD benefits are paid at two­thirds of you gross weekly wages for the year preceding the injury. This amount does not include any overtime or bonuses received.

Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) is paid based upon the rate and permanency given for the injury by a doctor. The benefit is based on 60% of your gross weekly wages for the year preceding the injury. The minimum and maximum amounts are based upon current Illinois law.
