The State of Illinois just passed a budget on July 15, 2009. The budget will result in a number of cuts throughout State Government and to Social Services Agencies.

People who work for the State of Illinois and who are injured will be paid their Workers’ Compensation but will have to continue to wait a long time.

Currently, it takes over 180 days to receive your settlement money. That is right almost 6 months wait time.

Most other settlements are paid out in 4 to 6 weeks.

It really is ridiculous. However, the State of Illinois makes vendors and injured workers wait a great deal of time to get paid.
