New York Extends Unemployment Insurance Benefits Through 2011

New York Extends Unemployment Insurance Benefits Through 2011

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that he has signed
into law a measure extending federally-funded unemployment insurance
benefits through 2011.
Without this new law, the state would not be able to continue to pay a
total of 93 weeks of benefits and would have forfeited $620 million in
federal payments to the unemployed, negatively impacting approximately
166,000 New Yorkers.
“This measure will ensure out-of-work New Yorkers will continue to
have a federally-funded safety net to help them weather this prolonged
economic downturn,” Governor Cuomo said. “Re-entering the workforce can
be daunting and time consuming. This law provides basic relief for the
thousands of job-hunters across the state.”
Senator Joseph E. Robach, Chair of the Senate Labor Committee and
sponsor of the Governor’s bill, said, “I am glad that quick legislative
action has allowed us to access federal funds to assist those on
unemployment during these challenging economic times. Hopefully, the
economy will improve with more private-sector jobs and relief for all.”
Assemblyman Keith Wright, Chair of the Assembly Labor Committee and
sponsor of the Governor’s bill, said, “At a time when far too many New
York residents are still struggling to emerge from the ‘Great
Recession,’ many families are still reliant upon unemployment insurance
to get them through these difficult times. This legislation makes much
needed changes ensuring that thousands of New York families get the
assistance they need while they continue to search for all-too-elusive
jobs in this economy.”
Since 2009, New York State has participated in a two-year federally-funded unemployment insurance program.In December 2010, the United States Congress extended the federal program by an additional year.The Governor’s legislation amends New York State law to allow the state to qualify for the additional third year of the program.The extended unemployment insurance program will continue throughout
2011. Under the program, benefits for all private sector and non-profit
employees are fully federally-funded.

It means the state passed the required legislation to accept the money from the Feds to pay extended benefits.

NY just passed the legislation that would allow them to keep paying EB. Glad they did as many states have refused the money and are not paying EB. People in states that refused the feds money for EB do not get anywhere near 99 weeks of benefits.

The 99 ers need HR 589 passed now and sadly a state can't do that.
