What's So Funny About Unemployment?

A funny little unemployment blog for your (un) enjoyment

Email your Congressperson! Unemployment and COBRA benefits are in danger!

leave a comment »

One of my job support groups just sent me urgent emails saying that unemployment extensions and COBRA subsidies — and that little $25 extra benefit we’ve been getting from Uncle Sam — are all about to expire. Unless Congress acts to renew them by the end of February.

A group called Unemployed Workers has the details at their site: Unemployed Workers Home.

They urge you to call and/or email your Congressperson and senators now. Urge them to once again extend unemployment extensions and the COBRA subsidies when Congress is back in session this Monday, Feb. 22.

Here’s the link to where you can send your rep and senators an email on this issue, courtesy of Unemployed Workers.

Personally, I need my COBRA plan for my health — and the COBRA subsidization has greatly helped my budget’s health.
