DLI issues $10.6M in UI benefits for the week of December 21 through December 25

The Montana Department of Labor & Industry (DLI) today announced that $10.6M in Unemployment Insurance (UI) payments were issued the week of December 21 through December 25, providing benefits to eligible Montanans.

That figure includes regular UI benefits, Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) benefits, and Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) benefits. Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) payments shown below were issued for weeks claimed and not previously approved between UI weeks ending April 4 through July 25, 2020. Due to the decline in Montana’s insured unemployment rate, Extended Benefits triggered off as of UI benefit week ending November 14. EB payments shown below were issued for weeks claimed and not previously approved.

Interim Pandemic Assistance payments shown below are for weeks claimed and not previously approved for the four UI benefit weeks ending November 28 through December 19. Today (December 28) is the last day claimants can submit their weekly payment requests for the IPA-designated benefit weeks.
