This report covers our financial audit of the Department of Employment Securitys Non-shared Funds for the year ended June 30, 2002. A compliance audit covering the two years ended June 30, 2003 will be performed next year.
Our auditors stated that the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Non-shared Funds of the Department of Employment Security as of June 30, 2002, and the changes in financial position thereof for the year then ended.
On February 4, 2003, the Governor applied for repayable advances to the account of the Illinois Unemployment Trust Fund (UTF) from the federal unemployment account. The UTF account, from which funds are drawn to pay benefits to claimants, is expected to be depleted as of late February or early March 2003 due toextended high unemployment. An initial borrowing of $450 million through April 2003 was approved which will be paid off in the first two weeks of May 2003 when first quarter employer tax contributions are received. Borrowing is projected to resume in June and continue through the end of calendar year 2003. The Department projects there will be a deficit in the trust fund through at least 2006.
