Federal Unemployment Benefits End September 4. These NJ programs can help

Hundreds of thousands of New Jersey workers will stop receiving federal unemployment benefits this weekend.

On Sept. 4, programs will add an additional $ 300 a week, extend state benefits to those who are exhausted and 13 weeks old and are already unemployed, such as freelancers, gig economists and independent contractors.

According to the New Jersey Department of Labor and Human Resource Development, workers can still qualify for these weeks before September 4 and be eligible for these improved federal benefits, but not for weeks after September 4.

Some workers who have been on regular state benefits for 26 weeks may still be eligible for an additional 13 weeks of state extended benefits. Applicants who have moved to this program should expect to see “Extended Unemployment Benefits” in their accounts as a condition of claim.
