Employment Security: Unemployment checks will be late

November 27, 2010 

Unemployment checks will be late for those who file a benefit claim Sunday and Monday, the state Employment Security Department announced.

The checks will be delayed up to two days; ESD expects to begin processing claims again on Wednesday, Dec. 1, according to a news release.

The delay was blamed on a computer programming project that will take longer than expected.
