The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development is making preparations to reinstate unemployment benefits for claimants in the Extended Benefit program.
Tennessee triggered off of the federal extension of benefits in mid-April.
The General Assembly passed legislation on May 21 to retroactively reinstate the Extended Benefit program back to April 16.
The bill will become law upon signing by Gov. Bill Haslam.
The passage of the bill allows those who were in the last 20 of 99 weeks available to resume benefits while looking for work.
