Section 2720.108 Alternative "Base Period"
a) Section 237 of the Act provides a definition of the term "base period". That Section also provides that, when an individual does not qualify for the maximum weekly benefit amount provided under Section 401 of the Act because he or she had insufficient wages during his or her base period as a result of being unemployed and when he or she was awarded temporary total disability during the period under any workers' compensation or occupational diseases Act, he or she shall be entitled to have his or her weekly benefit amount computed using an alternative base period, as described in Section 401.
b) For the purpose of determining the applicability of the alternative base period described in Section 237 of the Act, "awarded" temporary total disability shall not be limited to awards made by the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission or similar agencies in other states but shall include settlements and voluntary payments by employing units or their insurers.
