Weekly Unemployment Supplement Check
Friday, 06 March 2009
March 6 – State Labor Commissioner Michael Thurmond said today that the Georgia Department of Labor has begun mailing an additional $25 per week to more than 180,000 jobless Georgians who have a valid unemployment insurance claim with the Georgia Department of Labor.

“The weekly supplement to unemployment insurance benefits comes at a good time,” said Commissioner Thurmond. “This recession is expected to last longer than many economists and the Federal Reserve initially projected. The additional $25 each week will help the many thousands of Georgians who’ve lost their jobs through no fault of their own better weather this economic downturn.”

The action is the result of an agreement signed by Gov. Sonny Perdue and Commissioner Thurmond to allow unemployed Georgians to receive the additional funds in federal unemployment insurance benefits. Unemployment insurance recipients are eligible for the additional benefits beginning the week ending Feb. 28, 2009. And, more than 180,000 payments were released the week ending March 7, 2009.
