Regarding work search - Bets - 05-23-2019

Hi, I’m in Illinois and was wondering has anyone been told by their attorney to do a work search Monday thru Friday and a minimum of 5 to 7 contacts a day thru email, online applications, by phone and in person. This seems like a lot to me. The insurance company isn’t even paying me they haven’t been since the first of December of 2018. My attorney claims this will help my case but I have a disability claim that’s on going and I have another attorney for that. None of this makes sense to me. Has anyone else experienced this??


Thanks Bets
