EXTENDED STATE UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS ENDING

The  Department says today that extended benefits will be phasing out over the next month for 85,000 people in the state unless Congress votes to keep the program going.

People receiving benefit extensions through two federal programs will receive letters notifying them when their benefits will end.

Legislation to extend the benefits needs to be passed by Congress before the end of the year, but lawmakers are scheduled to recess and leave Washington DC this Friday.
