May 21st, 2020 by WCBC Radio

Over 51,000 Marylanders and nearly 2,500,000 Americans overall filed unemployment insurance benefits claims last week. A total of 51,108 Maryland residents filed unemployment insurance claims in the week ending May 16, 2020, a decrease of 14,697 from the previous week, labor officials report. 

Last week, 65,805 Marylanders filed for unemployment insurance benefits claims with the Maryland Department of Labor Division of Unemployment Insurance amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

The week ending May 2, 2020, 109,263 Marylanders filed claims overall. 

The unemployment numbers sharply increased the week ending in May 2 due to expanded filing under the federal CARES Act and the new website implemented by labor officials. 

In the week ending in April 25, 2020, a total of 37,225 Maryland residents filed claims.

The week ending in April 18, 2020, officials said 47,545 residents filed for benefits. The previous week, 61,770 residents filed claims.

Baltimore, Montgomery and Prince George's counties had the highest amount of residents to file claims, according to reports.

Overall, 2,438,000 Americans filed unemployment insurance claims with the U.S. Department of Labor, a decrease of 249,000 from the previous week's revised numbers, officials said.
