DES MOINES, IOWA – Total jobless benefits paid to Iowans in July decreased by $3.1 million from June, according to Iowa Workforce Development (IWD) analysts.

Benefits totaling $20.4 million were paid to 27,984 claimants compared to $23.5 million paid to 26,985 jobless workers in June. One less processing Wednesday and a decline in manufacturing, construction, and trade-related claims accounted for most of the decrease.

July 2004 benefit payments were $11.4 million below the July 2003 total of $31.8 million for 40,689 jobless workers. Most of the decrease was due to one less processing Wednesday and a decline in manufacturing, construction, and entertainment-related 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.
