States Cut Duration of Regular UI - Is Your State Here?

Post by Guest on Sun May 22, 2011 10:34 am

Some of the states that have drained their unemployment insurance funds are cutting the number of weeks that a laid-off worker can count on those benefits. Legislators are trying to limit tax increases for businesses to replenish the pool and are hoping the federal government keeps stepping in when the economy slumps.

Michigan, Missouri and Arkansas recently reduced the maximum number of weeks that the jobless can get state unemployment benefits. Florida is on the verge of doing so. Unemployment in those states ranges from 7.8 percent in Arkansas to 11.1 percent in Florida.

The benefit cuts come as legislatures deal with the damage that the recession inflicted on state unemployment insurance programs. The sharp increase in the number of people who lost their jobs drained the reservoir of money dedicated to paying out benefits.

Please read this article to see if your state is mentioned. Also, the article notes how deeply in debt some states are due to underfunded UI programs.

This is what HR 1745 addresses................... Waiting

Why do they continue to punish the unemployed for something they have NO control over? Crying or Very sad If it was our fault I could understand, I really could. But in this case, well, we all know who's fault it is....
