Extended Jobless Benefits for Wisconsin Residents in the Pipeline

-

Wisconsin residents will receive extra weekly unemployment benefits of $300 as a result of an authorization by President Trump, according to a state-by-state tally published by the Forbes website.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has indicated that it will provide six weeks worth of benefits after talks involving congressional representatives to provide more coronavirus relief broke down.

The application for the unemployed residents’ benefits in Wisconsin was approved on Sept. 1. The actual benefits will start to be sent out in November, Forbes reported.

The process to provide claimants with additional jobless benefits has caused uncertainties among the unemployed, according to Forbes. Driving some of the uncertainties is the need for some states to upgrade their computer systems so they can handle the added benefits, the website said.
