Connecticut: Gov. Malloy-state agencies moving to assist residents about to lose unemployment benefits

Post by Guest on Tue May 22, 2012 6:22 pm

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy today directed Connecticut Department of Labor (DOL) Commissioner Glenn Marshall and Department of Social Services (DSS) Commissioner Roderick Bremby to begin implementing their plan to bring targeted services to individuals and families who are losing their unemployment benefits as a result of the state’s declining unemployment rate.  The plan will coordinate communications to affected residents, improve access to social service programs and increase awareness of workforce development programs. 
 
Governor Malloy also announced that the United Way 2-1-1 will serve as a first point of contact and service connection for Connecticut residents losing unemployment benefits.
 
“While a lower unemployment rate is good news overall, for residents in jeopardy of losing their benefits, we have a clear obligation to make sure they are aware of the assistance that’s available,” said Governor Malloy.  “Starting today, our Department of Labor and Department of Social Services have a clear mission – to make sure that our state’s safety net is in place and helping residents during this difficult time.
 
“The best thing we can do for the long term is to make sure we continue to create jobs,” added Governor Malloy.  “But for those residents facing the loss of benefits, I urge you to call 2-1-1 and take advantage of all the resources that are available.  I want to thank Commissioners Bremby and Marshall for their work on this issue.”

When I exhausted my benefits over 2 years ago, I got the message to call "211" for assistance when I certified for my last week. Unfortunately, there are so many of us, there are not enough resources to assist everyone. The RI Dept. of Labor and Training lists the United Way hotline on their website.

I think it's good that at least one Governor is making people aware and getting the proper agencies readied. Many states have done nothing.

Liz many of the residents at work have tried 211 and it just leads them into a giant circle of phone calls and they never get anywhere! It helped me, but I have children. We need help for unemployed with no dependents. Kelly weidemer is starting to work for an organization specifically for this. I will try to find the info for it. It's much needed! Too many single people are left dangling with no help what so ever.

Mk, I think it's great that the governor is bracing people too. Wish there were more like him. Most wont even admit it is needed.
