Storm victims who lose jobs can apply for benefits

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Mississippi Department of Employment Security is urging anyone who has lost employment as a result of the storms to apply for benefits.

Storms victims are eligible whether they've lost jobs permanently or temporarily. Claims can be filed 24 hours a day at MDES.MS.GOV or during business hours at 1-888-844-3577.

Kathryn Stokes with MDES says it is too early to evaluate how much of an impact tornados and damage will incur on employment, but certainly a number of businesses have been affected. She say MDES wants to let storm victims know early that they are eligible for benefits if they lose employment because of the weather.
