The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell.
Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.
People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.

Assuming you are eligible, it is possible to receive as many as 26 weeks of benefits within your benefit year. The Monthly Base Amount (WBA x 26) is the total gross amount of money you will receive (not including dependent allowance).
Why did I get an overpayment notice from the Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES)?
Overpayments generally occur due to under-reporting of wages when certifying or a deny determination for an issue that retroactively disqualifies benefits already received. Contact Claimant Services at 800-244-5631 for questions and info on appeal rights.
If IDES has determined that you have been improperly paid unemployment insurance benefits, the amount of the overpayment will appear on the Notice of Reconsidered Determination and Recoupment Decision. By law, you must repay the entire amount you owe [Section 900 of the Illinois Unemployment Insurance Act (820 ILCS 405/900)]. If you are unable to pay the entire amount in one lump sum, you may enter into a monthly installment plan.
