Extended Unemployment Benefits Will Continue

LANSING (WWJ) – About 35,000 Michigan residents will continue receiving extended unemployment benefits, under legislation signed Monday by Governor Snyder.

The federal benefits would have ended April 1, 2011 because federal statistics that showed that Michigan no longer met the criteria to remain in the extended benefits program.

The Snyder administration asked for legislation to continue extended benefits through the end of the year.
