EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – In this edition of “12 Responds,” Target 12 investigators Tim White and Ted Nesi answer common questions, including many inquiries about the extra $600 unemployment payments.

A number of people report they received the extra money, but it wasn’t retroactive as promised under the law. As explained in the video, a spokesperson said the retro money is coming, they just have to process it “manually,” so it will added to benefits payments in the near future.
