Indiana Putting End to Federally Funded Pandemic Unemployment Benefits
Tuesday, May 18, 2021
INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana Governor Eric J. Holcomb announced Indiana will end its participation in all federally funded pandemic unemployment insurance programs in one month.
The announcement comes as the state unemployment rate -- once as high as 17 percent -- sits just below 4 percent, and with labor force participation nearing the pre-pandemic level.
In recent weeks, numerous states have announced that they will end their participation in the federally backed extension of benefits.
Ohio is among that group, Governor Mike DeWine said that the state will opt out as of June 26th.
Indiana’s participation in benefits will end on June 19th.
