The Illinois Department of Employment Security says the Tier 4 Emergency Unemployment Compensation will end June 23rd, thanks to economic improvements.
That means those who will have collected benefits through Tier 3 after June 23rd will not be eligible for any more benefits.
However those who qualified for the Tier 4 benefits before that date can continue to collect under the program.
Illinois has added over 142 thousand jobs since January 2010 when the unemployment rate peaked at 11.4 percent.
The rate has fallen for eight consecutive months to 8.7 percent this April.
