Unemployment benefits extension to end

Michigan's extended benefits for those who are unemployed will be ending soon.


Due to the state's lower unemployment rate, the U.S. Department of Labor notified the Michigan Unemployment Insurance Agency the Extended Benefits program will no longer be payable after Saturday, April 17th.


Extended benefits are available when the state's total unemployment rate averages 6.5% or higher for three consecutive months.


Michigan has paid approximately $419 million in Extended Benefits since high unemployment rates triggered the Extended Benefits program.
