Mississippi Department of Employment Security Helps Unemployed Guam Veterans

Posted: Updated:

CAMP SHELBY -- The Mississippi Department of Employment security is helping 300 Guam National Guardsmen with their unemployment claims.

MDES officials said the soldiers returning from Afghanistan will cycle out of the service through Camp Shelby.

The soldiers are eligible for the Unemployment Compensation for the Ex-military, also known as UCX.

But Guam does not have a system for unemployment benefits.

MDES staff will process and pay the claims through the agency's online services.

The Guam Department of Labor will monitor their work search efforts.
