Can someone else latch onto your Workers’ Compensation Settlement in Illinois?

This is also known as a lien on your Work Comp.

In Illinois, Workers’ Compensation is unique in that there are no liens.

For example, in personal injury settlements insurance companies and medical providers can put a claim in on your settlement money.

Not so for your Work Comp settlement.

The only people who can get your Work Comp money are Child Support and Public Aid (Medicaid payments).

So if your hospital or doctors claim they can get your settlement they are wrong.
