CHANGES MADE TO NEW FEDERAL UNEMPLOYMENT PROGRAM

 CHANGES MADE TO NEW FEDERAL UNEMPLOYMENT PROGRAM
 DETROIT, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Congress and the president have


approved two changes to the recently enacted federal Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program, F. Robert Edwards, director of the Michigan Employment Security Commission (MESC), reported today.
 The first change shortens the duration of the program by moving its ending date three weeks forward from July 4 to June 13, 1992.
 The second change eliminates the six-week payment period for EUC. Under the original legislation, EUC benefits could be paid for either 20, 13, or six weeks, depending upon the state's level of unemployment. With the change, states will now qualify to pay either 20 or 13 weeks of EUC benefits. Michigan is currently paying eligible claimants up to 20 weeks of EUC.
 The federally funded EUC program, which began in late November, pays jobless benefits to unemployed workers who have exhausted all of their unemployment benefits on or after March 1, 1991.
