This is an update regarding what is happening in Illinois legal cases.
Social Security is no longer holding in person or video hearings. However, Social Security continues to allow telephone hearings. The result is the same if you win: you are entitled to monthly benefits for the rest of your life and many times you will get back benefits.
There is no indication when in person or video hearings will resume for Social Security cases.
Illinois Workers’ Compensation hearings have been on hold since the Ides of March. They are scheduled to resume in June. This will allow cases to be decided and winning injured workers will be paid.
Illinois Work Comp cases may still be settled. This will be the fastest way to be paid.
Things are looking up for injured workers and those who can no longer work because the legal system will be able to process cases and get people money they need and deserve.
