Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

The State Treasurer shall be joined with the qualified group workers' compensation pool as party respondent in any claim or application for adjustment of claim filed against a qualified group workers' compensation pool whenever the compensation and medical services provided pursuant to this Article may be unpaid by reason of default of an insolvent qualified group workers' compensation pool.

    (b) When the Director determines that the compensation and medical services provided pursuant to this Article may be unpaid by reason of the default of an insolvent qualified group workers' compensation pool and the penal sum of the fidelity bond and the securities provided by the qualified group workers' compensation pool are about to become exhausted, the Director shall declare the qualified group workers' compensation pool to be in default and first levy upon and collect from the individual employer members of the qualified group workers' compensation pool in default an assessment to assure prompt payment of compensation and medical services. No assessment of any individual employer member of the qualified group workers' compensation pool made pursuant to this subsection shall exceed 25% of the average annual contribution paid by that employer over the previous 3-year period; however, if the Group Workers' Compensation Pool Insolvency Fund is then for any reason financially unable to assure prompt payment of compensation and medical services, the employer member may be assessed without limitation. If and only if (i) the Group Workers' Compensation Pool Insolvency Fund has a positive balance of less than $1,000,000, (ii) the Director has declared a qualified group workers' compensation pool to be in default, and (iii) the Group Workers' Compensation Pool Insolvency Fund is financially unable to pay all employees whose compensation and medical services have been approved, the Director shall levy upon and collect from all qualified group workers' compensation pools an assessment to provide the balance necessary to assure prompt payment of approved compensation and medical services. If an insurance carrier becomes liable for workers' compensation and occupational diseases payments under the terms of the policy covering the qualified group workers' compensation pool, the carrier shall make appropriate payments and payments from the Fund shall cease. Payments from the Fund shall resume only when the insurance carrier's liability is exhausted.
