DES MOINES, IOWA – Total jobless benefits paid to Iowans in June increased by $3.6 million from May, according to Iowa Workforce Development (IWD) analysts.

Benefits totaling $23.5 million were paid to 26,985 claimants compared to $19.9 million paid to 26,307 jobless Iowans in May. An extra processing Wednesday accounted for the gain.

June 2004 benefit payments were below the June 2003 total of $24.9 million for 33,451 unemployed workers. The decrease occurred mainly in manufacturing and entertainment claims.

Iowa Workforce Development, in cooperation with its many partner organizations, operates 71 offices serving all 99 Iowa counties. Sixteen regional workforce centers offer a one-stop experience for accessing many programs, products and services for job seekers, employers, students, economic developers and other community stakeholders.

IWD’s core services include job placement services for individuals; worker recruitment assistance to employers; training services to low-income and disadvantaged Iowans; worker protection and safety programs (inspections, consultation and education services); unemployment insurance programs and services; information regarding choices about careers, industries, labor availability and more; workers’ compensation benefits/entitlement; and technical assistance for employers.

Services, in most instances, are provided at no charge or for a nominal charge to the customer.
