CT Senate Republicans Push for Solutions, Answers for People Facing Unemployment Delays

April 17, 2020

Members of the Senate Republican Caucus today wrote to the Department of Labor to seek answers and solutions to help people struggling to access unemployment benefits due to a state backlog in processing claims.

“For weeks our constituents have shared with us their stories about their fear, anxiety and inability to support their
families as they continue to wait on unemployment benefits and hear nothing back from the Department of Labor
when they run into an issue. Just like the virus itself, fear of the unknown is a major part of the problem. We need
the Department of Labor to not only process claims in a timely manner, but to provide solutions, answers and
predictability for every resident.”
