After Delay, Unemployment Checks Go Out

State Labor Commissioner Michael Thurmond announced Thursday that federal extended unemployment insurance benefits are now being paid to nearly 91,000 jobless Georgians.

The benefits were enacted by Congress and signed by the President last Thursday.

The law extends the qualifying time for eligible recipients from June 2 through Nov. 30.

Checks mailed Thursday to Georgians totaled more than $76 million.
