INDIANA (www.incnow.tv) -- Those who depend on a weekly unemployment check to help make ends meet may want to refigure their household budgets.

The Indiana Department of Workforce Development announced late Friday afternoon that due to the sequester, federally extended unemployment insurance benefits for weeks 27-63 will be cut by 10.7%.

The changes will begin as of Monday, April 8th. Regular state unemployment insurance benefits for weeks 1-26 will not be affected.
