Possible online services disruption due to Internet related outage

A worldwide technology outage is causing disruption to some State of Illinois online systems.  We are aware of this issue and are diligently working on restoration.

Due to a global service outage, you may be unable to access IDES services at this time, including access to your claimant account.

Legal Services Program

IDES contracts with private law firms to provide free legal services (consultation and/or representation at IDES administrative hearings) to claimants and small employers who are eligible. These independent law firms are not part of IDES. Representation at your hearing is not automatic and depends, in part, upon the facts in your case.​
