The maximum length of extended unemployment benefits for jobless workers in Minnesota is going to decrease from 60 weeks to 46 weeks later this month. The reduction is because the unemployment rate has gone down.
Gov. Mark Dayton has signed a law keeping Minnesota's jobless eligible for 13 weeks of extended federal unemployment benefits. The Democratic governor signed the bill into law on Wednesday, saying the extension is "vitally important."
The Minnesota Legislature has passed a bill that would maintain access to longer unemployment benefits for the state's jobless. The bill cleared the Senate unanimously Monday after passing the House last month. It now heads to Gov. Mark Dayton's desk. The legislation makes a technical adjustment to state law to allow unemployed Minnesotans to continue collecting unemployment benefits for up to 86 weeks.
