Unemployment benefits now available in storm affected counties
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Disaster Unemployment Assistance benefits are now available for storm victims in 10 Tennessee counties.
Weekly benefits may range from $117 to $275 per week and are payable up to 26 weeks for those affected by severe weather Feb. 29-March 2.
The counties are Bradley, Claiborne, Cumberland, DeKalb, Hamilton, Jackson, McMinn, Monroe, Overton and Polk.
Labor Commissioner Karla Davis said the assistance brings some stability to the victims. She said this type of jobless help is available to the self-employed and others who are not ordinarily covered by the state unemployment insurance program.
