The South Carolina Department of Employment and Workforce says people should be able to see money from the Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) Program soon.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) approved the program for the state back on September 1st
People who are hurting from the pandemic would receive $300 per week if they are receiving at least $100 in weekly benefit amounts from a state or federal program, by continuing to complete the mandatory claim certification each week and indicating there’s a job disruption due to the pandemic.
News 19 has received several calls and messages from viewers asking when the money would come through from the program.
Heather Biance, Media Relations Specialist with the South Carolina Department of Employment and Workforce (SCDEW), says people can expect money from the program soon.
