Extra Unemployment Money Ends This Week

If you’ve been getting an extra $600 in unemployment benefits, this week is your last.

The stimulus boost is set to expire on July 31st, but several states have confirmed this is the last week. It would only continue if Congress approves an extension. So far, it doesn't appear that will happen

The Labor Secretary supports the payments ending. He says 70-percent of people who collected unemployment during the pandemic earned more than they did in their jobs.

Another coronavirus relief bill is in the works and expected to pass early next month and more unemployment help may be part of the package.
