Mayor Bowser Increases Unemployment Insurance Benefits

Date Released: 
Wed, 10/05/2016

(WASHINGTON, DC) – This week, Mayor Bowser implemented changes to the District of Columbia’s Unemployment Insurance (UI) program. With the changes, residents who are eligible for unemployment insurance benefits will be able to receive up to $425 per week, up from the previous maximum payment of $359, for up to 26 weeks. Furthermore, those with part-time work earnings will see a 14% increase in their weekly benefit payouts, a change that will make it easier for claimants to hold part-time jobs.
