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.

820 ILCS 405/607

    (820 ILCS 405/607) (from Ch. 48, par. 437)
    Sec. 607. Ineligibility after 26 weeks - Work requirement for second benefit year. A. An individual shall be ineligible for benefits whenever, in any period commencing with a compensable week of unemployment, he has been allowed his full weekly benefit amount for each of twenty-six weeks, until he has earned wages equal to at least three times his current weekly benefit amount in bona fide work, reduced by an amount equal to his current weekly benefit amount for each week, if any, in which he was not unemployed within such period, whereupon he shall again, if otherwise eligible, be permitted to receive his full weekly benefit amount for twenty-six weeks.
    If, however, a compensable week of unemployment is followed by three or more weeks (not necessarily consecutive) in each of which he earned wages for bona fide work equal to at least his then current weekly benefit amount, such period shall be deemed to commence immediately after the last week in which he earned such wages.
    This subsection is applicable only to weeks in benefit years which begin prior to January 1, 1972.
    B. An individual shall be ineligible for benefits for any week in a benefit year which begins on or after January 1, 1972, unless, subsequent to the beginning of his immediately preceding benefit year with respect to which benefits were paid to him, he performed bona fide work and earned remuneration for such work equal to at least 3 times his current weekly benefit amount.
