Millions to lose jobless aid Monday as claims fall to pandemic low
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Millions of jobless Americans who’ve been getting extra federal unemployment benefits are about to lose them.
Two programs will expire Monday.
One of them provides aid to self-employed and gig workers and the other is for people who’ve been unemployed for more than six months.
As a result, nearly nine million people will lose those weekly benefit payments and another two million will lose a $300 a week federal payment. That expires on Monday too.
Recipients will still be able to get their state benefits.
