Indiana residents can now start applying for unemployment benefits. It was earlier announced that residents can apply for unemployment benefits by Tueday, August 3. However, signing of unemployment benefits in Indiana started earlier following the completion of computer programming.
Vouchers for eligible residents are now being posted according to officials of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. One-third of the vouchers are expected to be available on Monday, department officials say. They also expect all vouchers ready by Tuesday and updates are done on a daily basis.
Indiana State Administration Department Commissioner Mark Everson has confirmed that Hoosiers can start filing for their unemployment benefits ahead of schedule.
There are twenty seven full-service WorkOne Centers for the Department of Workforce Development. These centers are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. until Friday, August 6. This new federal legislation has an estimate of 80,000 possible beneficiaries of the unemployment benefits.
Retroactive unemployment benefits can be filed online as well.
WorkOne Centers are also processing unemployment benefits extension at the end of the benefits period. Residents just need to bring their Department of Workforce Development letter of eligibility.
