    Default Workers Comp Case Finally Settled

    I just agreed to a lump sum settlement, how long will it take from when I sign to receive the check? I know the arbitrator still has to sign off on it, but has anyone else settled in Illinois and have a time frame?

    One other question how long will I receive my Voc. rehab checks?

    Thanks

    Did your attorney say how long it would be until the arbitrator signs off? Some times just getting in front of the arbitrator holds everything up.

    From the day the arbitrator signed off on my settlement til the day I received my check it was about 30 days.

    Can't help with the Voc rehab, as I didn't need it.

    Congrats on settling!

    He told me each IC is different, but he would go to see the arbitrator this week to get it signed. Does the IC's attorney sign it before or after the arbitrator?

    The arbitrator signs off after the agreement is signed by both sides.

    Hi EMM,
    How do you fill after all?
    Are you happy with what you've got?
    I'm on the same boat , I'm on Voc rehab now.
    Did they found you a job? If no how do they figure out the Wage Differential for you? What Voc. Rehab checks you are talking about?

    It feels good to be over with, I think i got a fair amount. They changed my pay status from TTD to voc. maintenance. I was told it would stop after the arbitrator signed the settlement document. No job I am looking at getting in with a buddy of mine that owns a company. Differential was figured on jobs available with my restrictions.
