Extended Unemployment Benefits To Be Reduced By 10 Weeks

The federally extended unemployment insurance benefits will be reduced by 10 weeks beginning Sunday, Sept. 2.

This is a result of federal legislation which reauthorized the extended benefits earlier this year. Those who begin the federal extension after Sunday may be eligible to receive a maximum of 63 weeks of benefits instead of 73.

Department of Worforce Development offices and WorkOne Centers will be closed on Monday due to the Labor Day holiday. Eligible unemployment vouchers will be paid starting Tuesday, Sept. 4.
