US Dept of Labor Awards Over A Million Dollars To MS

Bolton -

United States Representative Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS) announced that the United States Dept. of Labor has awarded $1,022,413 to the State of Mississippi to continue re-employment and eligibility assessments (REAs) for individuals who receive unemployment benefits.   

The funds will be used to provide Unemployment Insurance (UI) beneficiaries with personalized, re-employment plans based on the claimant's career interests and local labor market information.  These assessments are done in-person and participants will receive referrals to re-employment services and/or training provided by the American Job Center. 

The program will also allow for a complete review of the claimants eligibility for UI benefits, to help reduce incidences of improper payments.   

For more information call David Roberts with the United States Department of Labor at (202) 693-5945 or visit www.dol.gov.
