Montana now gets Tier 2 Unemployment Insurance Benefits

This story is from the AP:

Second tier of unemployment benefits available

By The Associated Press

HELENA - Some of Montana's unemployed qualify for a second tier of benefits, under a package taking effect this week.

Montana is one of 33 states where rising loss of work has triggered an additional level of emergency unemployment compensation. These federally funded benefits provide up to 13 weeks of payment to people who exhaust their regular and emergency unemployment compensation before April 5, and are ineligible to begin a new claim for benefits.

The Montana Department of Labor and Industry says people eligible for the money are being notified by mail.
