INDIANA (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Nearly a 100,000 Hoosiers could be without unemployment benefits if Congress doesn't pass an extension.

Benefits for Indiana residents expires Tuesday, 11/30, and will begin running out as soon as December 5th.

Anyone with a current coverage plan will be allowed to finish out this term but will not have benefits once it expires.

Officials with Work Force Development are encouraging Hoosiers to be pro-active in a job search instead of waiting for Congress to pass legislation.

Valerie Kroeger with Work Force Development says, "Once you exhaust your extensions, we recommend that you go into the Work One center. They do more than just unemployment and insurance. We can help you with your resume, we can help you find an employer who is hiring and help you get your foot in the door."

16,000 additional residents received extended benefits that are all set to expire December 12th.
