Workers' Compensation temporary disability benefits pay 66% of the worker's average weekly income, up to a maximum amount set by the state which is updated every 6 months. Temporary disability benefits are available through Workers' Compensation once an employee has missed 3 days of work.
Rates for Workers Compensation in Illinois vary based on the type of industry, safety record, and the payroll. Employers in higher risk industries can pay higher rates. However, because other factors such as claims history and payroll are considered, similar types of businesses can pay different rates. CoverWallet’s team can help you with a quote.

About half of all states make available a separate insurance fund for Workers' Compensation coverage, which usually competes with private insurers in the market and often becomes the insurer of last resort for difficult-to-place coverage. Currently, Illinois does not offer a state fund. However, pending legislation may change that status in the future.
If an employee is injured on the job and misses more than 3 days of work, the employer is required to report the accident to the Workers’ Compensation Commission. A notice explaining what to do in the event of a work-injury should be posted in a conspicuous area in the workplace.
