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
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
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.

each calendar year thereafter of each employer who has
incurred liability for the payment of contributions
within each of the three calendar years immediately
preceding the calendar year for which a rate is being
determined shall be the product obtained by multiplying
the employer's benefit ratio defined by Section 1503.1
for that calendar year by the adjusted state experience
factor for the same year, provided that:
1. Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, an
employer's minimum contribution rate shall be the greater of 0.2% or the product obtained by multiplying 0.2% by the adjusted state experience factor for the applicable calendar year. An employer's minimum contribution rate shall be 0.1% for calendar year 1996. An employer's minimum contribution rate shall be 0.0% for calendar years 2012 through 2019.
2. An employer's maximum contribution rate shall be
the greater of 6.4% or the product of 6.4% and the adjusted state experience factor for the applicable calendar year.
3. If any product obtained in this subsection is not
an exact multiple of one-tenth of one percent, it shall be increased or reduced, as the case may be to the nearer multiple of one-tenth of one percent. If such product is equally near to two multiples of one-tenth of one percent, it shall be increased to the higher multiple of one-tenth of one percent.
4. Intermediate rates between such minimum and
maximum rates shall be at one-tenth of one percent intervals.

benefit charges during the applicable period specified
in Section 1503.1, but who did not report wages for
insured work during such period, shall be the maximum
contribution rate as determined by paragraph 2 of this
contribution rate for each employer
for whom no wages became benefit wages during the applicable
period specified in Section 1503 or for whom no benefit
payments became benefit charges during the applicable
period specified in Section 1503.1, and who did not
report wages for insured work during such period, shall
be the greater of 2.7% or 2.7% times the then current
adjusted state experience factor as determined by the
Director in accordance with the provisions of Sections
1504 and 1505.
G. Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Section, no employer's
contribution rate with respect to calendar year 1989 and each calendar year
thereafter shall exceed 5.4% of the wages for insured work paid by him
during any calendar quarter, if such wages paid during such calendar
quarter total less than $50,000, plus any applicable penalty contribution rate calculated pursuant to subsection C of Section 1507.1.
