Cuts to N.C. unemployment insurance to take effect July 1


On July 1st, an estimated 70,000 jobless workers in N.C. will lose access to federal unemployment insurance as a result of cuts to the state’s benefits, making North Carolina the only state in the U.S. to lose the Federal Emergency Unemployment Compensation Program (EUC). The impending implementation of House Bill 4 will not only cut off federal benefits from N.C.’s unemployed but will also decrease the maximum amount of unemployment insurance benefits by about 34% and lower the number of weeks unemployed N.C. workers can receive those benefits.
