Federal Benefits About to End

Federal unemployment benefits are set to run out for about 25,000 Oregonians by the end of the year, and it’s not clear whether congress plans to continue the program in 2013.  If lawmakers do nothing, residents who have exhausted their 26 weeks of state benefits and were getting federal supplementary assistance will receive their last checks the first week of January.   Those who lose their jobs in 2013 will be eligible only for 26 weeks of state unemployment help unless congress decides to renew the more generous federal program next year.
