Missing S.C. jobless checks going out Monday

Jul 22, 2010 1:59:00 PM - thestate.com
South Carolina will open its workforce centers Saturday to help the unemployed get checks stopped when federal funding ran out in June.

The U.S. House approved extending jobless benefits today. President Obama is expected to sign the measure into law later today.

The estimated 43,000 South Carolinains who missed jobless checks will be paid retroactively in a lump sum, the S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce said today.

The payments should be sent out Monday, state officials.

But not all of those whose payments were stopped will have to visit state workforce centers.
