Those Hoosier workers left unemployed because of the floods have a month to apply for special disaster unemployment benefits. To be eligible, workers or those self-employed such as farmers must be unemployed as a result of a federally declared major disaster, be unable to reach the job, cant work because of a disaster-related injury or became the primary means of support after the head of household died from the disaster. They must also live in one of the declared disaster areas, which in the tri-state includes Daviess, Knox, Gibson and Posey counties. The deadline for affected workers to file is Saturday, July 19th. Also, the U.S. Department of Agriculture is issuing emergency food stamps to residents of Gibson and Posey counties who suffered major losses in the flooding. Residents of Daviess and Knox counties are already eligible.
