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.
