Federal Unemployment Benefits Restored In Mich. 8-05-2010

LANSING, Mich.The state said federal unemployment benefits have been restored to about 69,500 people in Michigan who were cut off in July.
Michigan's Unemployment Insurance Agency said Thursday it has issued about $38 million in retroactive payments over the past two weeks.
The agency said it began making some payments to jobless workers on July 23, the day after President Barack Obama signed into law a restoration of benefits for people who have been out of work for six months or more.
The state said people should have received their benefit payments two to three business days following their most recent contact with the Unemployment Insurance Agency's automated system.
