DeAngelo, Danielsen, Holley, Houghtaling & Downey Bill to Ensure Timely Decisions on Unemployment Insurance Benefits Approved by Assembly
Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Wayne DeAngelo, Joseph Danielsen, James Holley, Eric Houghtaling and Joann Downey to establish a deadline for the issuance of determination notices to applicants for unemployment benefits was approved Wednesday by the General Assembly.
Bill Requires Initial Notification to Be Issued No Later Than Three Weeks from Receipt of Claim
"When someone's out of a job and facing financial hardship, unemployment benefits may be the only thing that keeps the lights on and puts food on the table," said DeAngelo (D-Mercer/Middlesex). "Making sure people get their benefits sooner will limit the strain on jobless workers as they try to get back on their feet."
