Unemployment benefits ending for millions

Unemployment benefits ending for millions



This is bad news to anyone who is receiving extended or emergency unemployment benefits around the country.

On Dec. 28, approximately 1.3 million out-of-work Americans will lose their unemployment benefits. That is on the grounds that Congress declined to reestablish a crisis support program for the jobless that is set to lapse that day.

This could still possibly change: Senate Democrats have said they’ll return promptly January and attempt to reestablish the Emergency Unemployment Compensation program for an alternate year, which might require harshly $25.2 billion. Anyway if that exertion falls flat, the country’s wellbeing net for the unemployed will contract essentially in 2014.
