Congress Almost Certain To Blow Unemployment Deadline

Post by DesperateInRI on Fri Dec 28, 2012 12:48 pm

It won't be the first time in recent years that lawmakers will watch idly as millions of Americans stop receiving federal unemployment insurance, which kicks in for workers who use up the standard six months of state-funded benefits. During the summer of 2010, benefits lapsed for weeks as the Senate squabbled over the spending. After lawmakers finally reached a deal, unemployed people received lump sums accounting for the benefits they'd missed. Presumably, the same thing would happen if Congress reauthorizes the benefits early in January.

Democrats have demanded a full reauthorization of emergency benefits through next year, which would cost $30 billion, according to the Congressional Budget Office. The current regimen of benefits provides up to 47 weeks in states with high unemployment rates, for a combined 73 weeks of state and federal compensation. Jobless workers in only nine states are eligible for the full duration.

Good Luck to all that are about to lose EU benefits, and join those of us that have been without since Mar 2010, the forgotten ones. I hope you have prepared as well as possible for what is about to happen to you.

As we have learned the hard way, nobody except those involved care.
