The Democratic Steering Committee held a hearing on renewing the federal extension of unemployment insurance benefits. The extension, which was set to expire on December 28, 2013, was put in place in response to the 2008 economic crisis to help those who are unemployed longer than six months. It allows the unemployed to get as much as a year and a half of help while they search for work, even after state benefits have run out.

Witnesses included including an electrician, a bio-tech professional and long-time company executive. They implored Congress to stop the benefits from expiring, detailing how the benefits helped them pay their mortgages and pay for gas to get to job interviews. close
