Indiana restarts federal pandemic unemployment benefits, but thousands of Hoosiers still wait
Indiana has now restarted federal unemployment benefits for thousands of laid-off Hoosiers, according to leaders with the state’s Department of Workforce Development.
“DWD is restarting the three federal unemployment insurance programs,” Regina Ashley, Indiana’s chief unemployment insurance officer told reporters at a morning briefing. “Claimants were able to request weekly payments beginning yesterday. In fact, as of this morning, we’ve already paid 25,000 claimants on PUA and PEUC over $33 million.”
