Nearly 8,000 Wisconsinites to Lose Extended Jobless Benefits

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (04/05/12) John Schmid

Wisconsin does not meet the federally required threshold for long-term unemployment benefits, because its unemployment rate fell to 6.9% in February. As a result, 7,761 state residents will lose their extended jobless benefits on April 7, and the maximum number of weeks that unemployed residents can claim benefits will drop from 86 to 73. The National Employment Law Project says Wisconsin will fall another tier on June 1 if its unemployment rate remains under 7%, meaning that benefits can be claimed for only 60 weeks. Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Missouri, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, and Tennessee also will lose extended benefits, according to NELP.
