How will Obama’s economic stimulus plan affect unemployment benefits for unemployed people in North Carolina?
Question by Anna: How will Obama’s economic stimulus plan affect unemployment benefits for unemployed people in North Carolina?
For how many weeks will unemployment benefits be extended? Initially, I had read that unemployment benefits would be extended another 33 weeks, but now I’m hearing they will be extended through the end of the year for those whose benefits are exhausted after March. Which is it? If my unemployment benefits are set to expire at the end of February, how many more weeks of benefits will I get, assuming I am eligible?
