New rule takes effect for jobless benefits in Pa.



Published: Wed, September 11, 2013 @ 6:05 p.m.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — People applying to the state for unemployment benefits will now have to register on a state job-searching website to receive compensation pay.

A Department of Labor and Industry spokeswoman said today that newly finalized regulations allow the state to withhold benefits from people who do not register as job seekers at jobgateway.pa.gov within 30 days of applying.

The requirement took effect after it was published Aug. 19 and applies only to new applications filed on or after that date.

Agency spokeswoman Sara Goulet says people seeking or receiving benefits also are required to compile a track record of their job-searching activity.

Goulet says, however, the department isn’t ready to begin demanding that proof or withholding benefits from people who don’t provide it.

Why are they constantly going after those who lose their jobs thru no fault of their own, this should also be applied to welfare, you want a check you have to register for work too, or no check!!!!! Lets stop the enabling!!!
