State Retirees Notified of Health Payment Rebates

As one who has retired from state government, I have health benefits and a pension.

Last year there was an Illinois Supreme Court decision that ruled premiums could not be raised.

The amounts collected–on a sliding scale with those having higher pensions paying 1% the first year and 2% the second year–were ordered refunded.

Attorney Donald Craven pocketed over $1.5 million in legal fees–approximately 2.2% of the total amount ordered refunded.

Backing into the total, it amounts to about $68 million.

In the mail today came a notice of what the refund will be.
