The extra $300 unemployment payments available during the coronavirus pandemic is coming to an end in Tennessee. The Federal Emergency Management Agency informed the state that funding for the Lost Wages Assistance Program payments was slated to stop. Eligible claimants will receive the additional $300 for the weeks ending August 1 through September 5, 2020. Retroactive payments will be delayed at least two weeks and the August 29 and September 5 payment periods will have a lag time. The $300 benefit is added to the current maximum state payout of $275. The state requested the extra unemployment funding after the end of a $600-per-week payout under the federal coronavirus relief bill.
