About Chicago

Chicago has approximately 2.7 million residents making it the third most densely populated city in the United States.

The city is one of the most important Worldwide centres for trade and commerce - it ranked seventh in the World in the 2012 Global Cities Index. Behind Tokyo, New York City and Los Angeles, Chicago has the fourth largest gross domestic product (GDP) and ranks ahead of London and Paris for GDP.

The largest employers in the city include the U.S. Government, Chicago Public Schools and Advocate Health Care.

Health Insurance

You will need to have Global Health Insurance when you start working in Chicago and if you can obtain this from your employer it will be a big benefit for you and your family. You might want to check the level of coverage as some employers may only offer a basic option which may not cover all your needs.

Further advice on health care coverage can be found here Agency of Healthcare Research and Quality.
