I received a note from UI. Stating sorry, but done. I was concerned earlier in the week republicans

would miss this up. Some replied McConnell reelection and I though, right. He couldn't do this. He can't do this and win. But, looks like he is not concerned. Kinda scares me why a self interest man like McConnell has no concerns for his reelection.

Anyone else? What do you think?

So, what is going to happen. Are they going to extend UI? Trump is now pushing Republicans to not


extend. I think they have to and they know it. They low ball with 100 a week. They have to for the economy alone. Maybe for votes but certainly not because they care what is going to happen to people.

I know no one knows what is going to happen, but a guess. Do you think Trump will interfere and Republicans and Dems won't come to an agreement, or it will get done?

The Repugs are holding up the stimulus plan. They left Washington without voting on the plan. Moscow Mitch is saying that it might take some weeks before they pass it. The Repugs can't even agree on the plan.

People are going to be suffering because of this. Many will be evicted. They can't afford to pay their bills nor feed their kids.

This is all the fault of the Repugs. Make sure the American People here that it the fault of the Repugs. Make sure the American People know who's to blame. The Dems need to keep hitting that message while the Repugs duck their responsibility.

You know that the Repugs will somehow blame the Dems for this hold-up. The Dems can't let that happen. The Dems need to go on and keep on the offensive with this. They need to keep hammering this home to the American People so that come Nov. the vote is so overwhelmingly blue that we take more seats in the House. We win the Senate with 60 seats. And Joe Biden becomes our President.

Edit to add: I have not had unemployment so admittedly I know nothing. Sorry, hence going for any info people have.
Dear Oregonian:

We know that many Oregonians have been counting on the extra $600 per week through the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) program. Since the program began on March 29, we have paid out more than $2 billion in FPUC benefits, so this is going to have a significant impact on Oregon families and communities. Just last week, the Department paid the extra $600 to more than 130,000 Oregonians, and that doesn’t include some Oregonians whose claims have not yet been processed.

We want to be sure Oregonians know what to expect, and also want them to know about additional resources available to them to supplement the $600 weekly loss in benefits. Here is what you need to know if you have already been receiving those benefits or are waiting for your benefits to be paid:

Every Oregonian who was eligible for regular unemployment benefits or Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) benefits between March 29 and July 25 is also eligible for the extra $600 per week during that period.
When you file a claim after July 25, you will still get your regular unemployment benefits or PUA benefits for each week you are eligible, if you file a weekly claim. You will no longer get the extra $600 each week.
If you haven’t yet been paid for weeks between March 29 and July 25, you will still get the extra $600 per week for those weeks once your claim is processed, for all weeks you were eligible.
We want every Oregonian to know about all benefits available to them. Unemployed Oregonians may also qualify for help paying for rent, utilities, food, healthcare, and more—especially now that the extra $600 per week is ending. We encourage you to visit 211info.org or call 211 to learn what benefits might be available to you. Free interpretation is provided.

We are grateful to our Congressional delegation for pushing hard to bring this extra relief to so many Oregonians. We know it has helped thousands of Oregon families who haven’t been able to return to work. We are frustrated that getting Oregonians the benefits they deserve has not been easy. We are making progress, and we know there’s a lot more work to do.

We hope that Congress will quickly pass additional measures to extend the program or come up with a solution that is able to be easily implemented so Oregonians can get more relief—and quickly. If they do, we will see how the legislation will impact Oregonians and share that information with you as quickly as we can.

6. This is odd

UI sent you a letter saying its done? Despite what all the "news" is reporting there is something I know to be true. Unemployment lags on payment by 2 weeks. I certified this week for the previous 2. My understanding having 30 yrs of experience due to the nature of my job, my last 600 when it expires, would actually be paid in 2 weeks. The program expires today, but this week has not been certified.
It has frosted my ass the press keeps repeating shit that they no idea how it works. Causing uneeded panic and stress.

7. Here is the letter. Didn't think it necessary to put this in Op but no problem doing it. I have

not been on unemployment in the past and it is all particularly hard for me and I do not know a lot about it. Sorry, I am uninformed hence grabbing any info people put out there.

8. Posting the letter actually made it much more clear

Just like I thought. So filing a claim is not the same as certifying and that's where people get confused. With 4500 people in my organization the old timers are used to guiding the not so experienced. LOL. It does state in this letter if you are already receiving benefits, you will receive the extra 600 for weeks eligible up til the payout for week that encompasses July 25th. In the grand scheme of things it doesn't mean much, but it does clear up what has been reported in earnest the last few weeks. If your certification date is next week then you will receive 1200 plus reg benefits, minus if they are prorating this. meaning if state goes from Sunday to Saturday it might be a reduced 600 for one week. THAT I do not know. I wish the best for you.

13. I read on the website for Oregon 39 weeks. So mine is sitting at 246 with tax taken out. That will

help. So with it extending past the date they are taking the 600 off, then that will still leave me in the system for when/if they re-implement. That is a good thing. It is so hard getting signed up for anything and I be if they reinstall it, it will be done automatically.

Thanks for the information.
