SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- A deadline has been extended for some Illinois state retirees to submit certain health insurance documents because of the federal government shutdown.

Recipients of various state health insurance programs need to provide IRS documents by a late October deadline in order to prove that their dependents should still be eligible to receive state health insurance coverage. But as the federal shutdown drags on, the transcripts aren't being released by the IRS.

The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reports the Illinois Department of Central Management services extended the verification deadline to Dec. 6. The material had been due Oct. 25 unless someone requested an extension.

Anyone who doesn't submit the documentation on time, or request an extension, could lose health insurance coverage for their dependents.
