How Do I File for Workers' Comp?

Every year in Illinois there are between 38,000 and 45,000 workers' compensation claims filed for traumatic injuries, repetitive injuries, and mental stress injuries. These applications are filed at the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission located at 100 W. Randolph St.

The state of Illinois has a no-fault system and is only concerned with whether the injury or injuries arose out of and were in the course of the employee's work duties. If this burden can be satisfied, then the injured worker may qualify for benefits.

Is Workers’ Comp Taxable Income?

Generally speaking, workers’ compensation benefits are not taxable. This includes both the state and federal level. However, there may be some exceptions to this, including individuals who receive compensation alongside other benefits such as Social Security Income or Social security disability insurance.

If your combined compensation meets a certain threshold, the Social Security Administration (SSA) may need to offset the workers' compensation benefits by reducing other benefits. The difference between the amounts you get from each income may be taxable. However, most people who receive both SSD and workers’ compensation typically don’t owe taxes.
