S.C. To Begin Payments for Extended Unemployment Soon

The South Carolina Employment Security Commission ´╗┐sent out letters this week to those eligible for extended unemployment benefits and should begin sending out checks before Christmas. President Obama approved the federal extension Nov. 6, but antiquated computer software created headaches for some states, including South Carolina, which made it difficult to reprogram to allow such extended payments.

Most of those eligible received notification by mail yesterday, and Anderson's Employment Security Commission was crowded with potential recipients.  Payments to unemployed South Carolinians will be retroactive to the legislation’s signing date. Those who think they might be eligible should visit the local office at 309 W Whitner St, Anderson.
