Unemployment Checks Still Unsent to Thousands

MADISON, WI (Ben Caxton) — Thousands of Wisconsin residents have yet to receive their first unemployment check. `Officials with the Department of Workforce Development confirm more than 675 thousand claims are still unpaid. The Safer at Home order resulted in more than two million claims since mid-March. The state agency has been overwhelmed. The numbers don’t include people who haven’t been able to get through to make a claim. D-W-D is still promising unemployment recipients will get their back pay, but it isn’t known how long that might take.`
