HELENA — The Montana Department of Labor and Industry announced Monday that approximately 46,000 Unemployment Insurance payments totaling over $47 million were issued over the week of June 15 through June 19, providing benefits to Montanans impacted by COVID-19.

That figure includes regular UI benefits, Pandemic Unemployment Assistance benefits, Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation benefits and the additional $600 weekly Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation benefits.

“As folks safely return to work in a re-opened Montana economy, it is imperative we keep our focus on providing unemployment benefits to those impacted by COVID-19 as quickly and accurately as possible,” Acting Commissioner Brenda Nordlund said. “We know how important these payments are to Montanans whose livelihoods were upended by the pandemic.”
