AUGUSTA, Maine (WABI) - The Maine Department of Labor says the issue that prevented some claimants from receiving unemployment benefits Tuesday morning has been resolved.

The Department says it will release those payments Tuesday night. In a statement, the DOL did advise that precisely when an individual receives the payment will depend on their financial institution.

On Tuesday morning, the Maine Department of Labor said it was working on an issue that resulted in some Mainers not receiving their unemployment benefits.

In a statement Tuesday morning, the DOL said:

“While most unemployment claimants received their benefits this morning as usual, we are aware that some individuals’ payments were not deposited. We are working on the issue and will put out an update as information becomes available. We thank claimants for their patience.”
