4 Million Americans Set To Lose Unemployment Benefits Even If Congress Passes Extension (CHART)

4 Million Americans Set To Lose Unemployment Benefits Even If Congress Passes Extension (CHART)

“Okay so What I dont understand is the whole extended benefits...My boyfriend just got 12 weeks of regular unemployment and he is already cut off. Even though he received a letter that said he was approved from the EUC 08 tier 1. Now they are saying he can't get that until congress passes for the additional extended benefits. So people that have been getting for 80-90 weeks should be happy. He got 12 and that is all. And this was after he was told to file for Dec 4, and Dec 11 and he would have money on his card on that Monday the 13th. Talking about being angry. Any idea on when Congress might pass for the additional money???”

“Every state's UI system is a bit different, but EU went unfunded from December 6 to a couple of days ago when Congress finally approved the Tax Cuts thing. So long as he continued to file UI as is normally required, he's still in the system. The next check should have the money for 'lost days' included. EU money comes from the Federal Government. States are unable to make payments on it. 12 weeks regular UI; that's not very much. Even Texas has 24 weeks regular.”
