Extended Unemployment: Initial, Continued and Extended Unemployment Claims November 21 2012

Today’s jobless claims report showed declined for both initial and continued jobless claims as initial claims remained above the closely watched 400K level.

Seasonally adjusted “initial” unemployment claims declined by 41,000 to 410,000 claims from a revised 451,000 claims for the prior week while seasonally adjusted “continued” claims declined by 30,000 claims to 3.337 million resulting in an “insured” unemployment rate of 2.6%.

Since the middle of 2008 though, two federal government sponsored “extended” unemployment benefit programs (the “extended benefits” and “EUC 2008” from recent legislation) have been picking up claimants that have fallen off of the traditional unemployment benefits rolls.

Currently there are some 2.19 million people receiving federal “extended” unemployment benefits.

Taken together with the latest 2.96 million people that are currently counted as receiving traditional continued unemployment benefits, there are 5.15 million people on state and federal unemployment rolls.
