Unemployed Michiganders Will Get $300 Extra After Labor Day

September 04, 2020, 7:36 AM

Some relief is on the way.

Michiganders already receiving unemployment benefits should start seeing  additional $300 weekly payments after Labor Day. The payments are retroactive to Aug. 1, and will last up to five weeks, Bridge Magazine reports. 


It's unclear if more supplemental benefits will be available after then.

Those now filing for benefits aren't likely to be eligible for the extra payments. 

The maximum unemployment benefit in Michigan is $362 per week. The extra $300, provided under a presidential executive order, takes that up to $662.

An extra $600 a week in federal unemployment money ran out at the end of July.
