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.

(from Ch. 48, par. 453)
Reconsideration of findings or determinations.
The claims adjudicator may reconsider his finding at any time within
thirteen weeks after the close of the benefit year. He may reconsider his
determination at any time within one year after the last day of the week
for which the determination was made, except that if the issue is
whether or not, by reason of a back pay award made by any governmental
agency or pursuant to arbitration proceedings, or by
reason of a payment of wages wrongfully withheld by an employing unit, an
individual has received wages for a week with
respect to which he or she has received benefits, such reconsidered
determination may be made at any time within 3 years after the last
of the week, or if the issue is whether or not an individual misstated earnings for any week beginning on or after March 15, 2020, such reconsidered determination may be made at any time within 5 years after the last day of the week. No finding or determination shall be reconsidered at any time
after appeal therefrom has been taken pursuant to the provisions of Section
800, except where a case has been remanded to the claims adjudicator by a
Referee, the Director or the Board of Review, and except, further, that if
an issue as to whether or not the claimant misstated his earnings is newly
discovered, the determination may be reconsidered after and notwithstanding
the fact that the decision upon the appeal has become final. Notice of such
reconsidered determination or reconsidered finding shall be promptly given
to the parties entitled to notice of the original determination or finding,
as the case may be, in the same manner as is prescribed therefor, and such
reconsidered determination or reconsidered finding shall be subject to
appeal in the same manner and shall be given the same effect as is provided
for an original determination or finding.
The changes made by this amendatory Act of the 102nd General Assembly apply retroactively to March 15, 2020.
