Thousands of North Carolinians who rely on unemployment benefits could see their checks discontinued over the next seven weeks. More than 164,000 NC residents could be affected.

The federal government's emergency, supplemental unemployment benefits are about to expire.

Congress has allowed the emergency funds to lapse several times in the past but eventually extended them. At this time, there is no word on another extension.
