Tell Congress to Finish the Job

April 2014

On Monday, the Senate passed a bill to extend emergency unemployment compensation (EUC) benefits. If the bipartisan bill passes the next hurdle in the House, it will restore benefits through May and provide retroactive benefits back to Dec. 28, when EUC expired. More than 2 million out-of-work Americans have been cut off from assistance since the end of last year.

Call (800-826-3688) or email your representative today and urge him or her to vote to extend unemployment insurance. These benefits help people make ends meet until they are able to get back on their feet again.
