Unemployment benefit claims in North Carolina slow down as federal supplement ends | State and Regional News

frank lampard

The expiration — for now — of the federal unemployment insurance benefit supplement has led to a week-long decline in new claims in North Carolina.

However, economists said Friday it’s too early to determine whether there is a trend of fewer claims.

The N.C. Division of Employment Security reported that as of 10 a.m. Friday, new claims were below 10,000 for six of the last seven days. That includes 6,289 new claims Thursday.

Since mid-March, 1.21 million North Carolinians have filed a combined 2.06 million state and federal jobless claims. Some people have been required to file a second claim — after being determined to be ineligible for initial state benefits — in order to qualify for federal benefits that often include extended state benefits.

About 28.5% of the 4.23 million North Carolinians considered in the state’s workforce as of mid-June have filed a state or federal unemployment claim.

Workers Protest End Of $600 Unemployment Supplement; Jobless In Florida Stuck With Lowest Benefit In Nation

frank lampard

By Laura Cassels

July 31, 2020

Workers in Miami protested Friday against losing federal Unemployment Insurance benefits of $600 weekly that jobless people were receiving in the pandemic economy due to massive job losses.

The four-month-old supplement ended Friday, with partisan fighting in Congress failing to create a replacement.

That leaves jobless workers in Florida reliant on a $275 weekly state benefit that includes only 12 weeks of unemployment pay — the lowest total benefit in the nation, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. (The base number of weeks does not reflect the 13-week extension authorized by Congress for COVID-19 relief.)

“We are feeling the pain of the pandemic through no fault of our own. There are no jobs for people to find,” said Jeffrey Mitchell, president of the South Florida AFL-CIO and of Transit Workers Union Local 291, who was interviewed by the Phoenix.
