Unemployment Benefits Extension

Unemployed Alabama residents could be eligible for up to 7 more weeks of benefits, if they meet requirements laid out at Over 10 thousand Alabamans could meet the requirements.

As unemployment rises, lawmakers in Washington passed legislation to make the extra benefits available.

Ironically, the benefits extension hinges on the unemployment rate for the state. If Alabama's unemployment rate was higher, our unemployed would be eligible for longer benefits extensions.
