(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Thousands of long-term unemployed Nevadans will lose their extended benefits next month.

Officials say the State Extended Benefits program will end July 7th, because Nevada’s jobless rate has fallen below 12%.  SEB provided up to 20 weeks of additional checks for people whose basic jobless benefits ran out.

About 5500 recipients will still be able to get help with their work searches through Nevada JobConnect offices.
