STATE TO PROVIDE INFORMATION ON FEDERAL EXTENDED BENEFITS BILL

 STATE TO PROVIDE INFORMATION ON FEDERAL EXTENDED BENEFITS BILL
 HARRISBURG, Pa., Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- State Department of Labor and Industry officials today said approximately 250,000 state residents will be mailed information on applying for extended employment compensation benefits as soon as the U.S. Congress and President George Bush pass the legislation.
 No action was taken on the legislation as of late Friday.
 Upon passage of the legislation, the department will mail information to potential claimants. This packet will describe eligibility requirements and it will include an application form.
 Claimants need not visit their local Job Centers in order to apply for federal extended benefits. Extended benefits claims will be filed by mail and processed electronically.
 Pennsylvania's regular jobless benefits program provides a maximum of $298 per week for a duration of up to 26 weeks. The proposed federal extended benefits legislation would provide an additional period of from six to 20 weeks for those who have exhausted their regular claims and are still unemployed.
 Draft federal legislation would require that any individual applying for extended benefits actively seek work at least three times in each week for which the worker will be seeking benefits.
