Unemployment Benefits


Rhode Island Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse are among 32 lawmakers who are urging extension of benefits for the long-term unemployed.   If Congress doesn't act by the end of the month, benefits will stop for nearly one-and-a-half-million people at the end of the year, and millions more will have no benefits after their initial 26 weeks of unemployment insurance ends during 2014.  Reed, Whitehouse and the other senators say unemployment insurance is a lifeline to people searching for work in a “challenging economy.”
