Indiana Again Issuing Higher Unemployment Benefits

(Indianapolis, IN) - The State of Indiana is once again paying weekly $300 enhanced federal supplement unemployment benefits.

 

The additional unemployment payments were stopped last month. But an appeals court ruled against the state of Indiana, forcing the state to continue unemployment benefits until the lawsuit ran its course in court. 

 

Indiana's unemployment rate is currently at 4.1%. It was 16.9 percent during the peak of the pandemic in April of last year. The supplemental benefits, which were part of the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 stimulus package signed into law by President Joe Biden, are set to expire in September.
