(820 ILCS 405/701)
(from Ch. 48, par. 451)
A representative designated by the Director, and hereinafter referred to
as a claims adjudicator, shall promptly examine the first claim filed by a
claimant for each benefit year and, on the basis of the information in his
possession, shall make a "finding." Such "finding" shall be a statement of
the amount of wages for insured work paid to the claimant during each
quarter in the base period by each employer. On the basis of the "finding,"
the claims adjudicator shall decide whether or not such claim is valid
under Section 500 E, and, if so valid, shall compute the weekly benefit
amount payable to the claimant and the maximum amount payable with respect
to such benefit year; and shall promptly notify the claimant thereof,
shall notify his most recent employing unit, and with respect to benefit
years beginning on or after July 1, 1989, shall also notify the individual's
last employer (referred to in Section 1502.1) that such claim has been filed.
The claims adjudicator shall promptly notify the claimant of his "finding."
