    Illinois residents currently receiving unemployment benefits stand to lose their payments

    100_0388  An estimated 65,000 Illinois residents currently receiving unemployment benefits stand to lose their payments by the first week in March if Congress doesn’t authorize another extension before Feb. 27. According to the National Employment Law Project. 
    Another 290,000 unemployed workers will lose their benefits by June.


    The federal government funded several tiers of unemployment extensions, totaling 73 weeks, on top of the state’s regular 26 weeks of unemployment benefits. The federal funding was part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and was set to expire Dec. 31, but Congress crammed a two-month extension into a military spending bill. That funding authorization expires Feb. 28.

    You should contact your Representative, tell them your concerns, let them know how this will affect your family, and how it will affect your voting and your neighbors voting.  Remember Democracy
