The Guam Department of Labor says another $9.9 million is going out in the next batch of unemployment payments.

GDOL Director David Dell’Isola confirmed with PNC News the latest batch covers clean claims filed up to and including September 10.

Of the next payments, $7.9 million will be direct deposits, $1.2 million in paper checks and $800,000 is going to GovGuam coffers in taxes.

Payments are expected as early as Friday but more likely early next week for e-deposits and later in the week for paper checks.

Thus far, GDOL has paid out around $425 million in unemployment claims on Island.

There’s still no word on when the LWA $300 bump payments will be sent out to affected residents, as the department continues to finalize the program with their software vendor.
