AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - The Maine Department of Labor says it’s resolved the computer system problem that caused a delay in issuing unemployment benefits to 2,200 people in the state.

The problem halted processing of unemployment checks, direct deposits, and other notifications Tuesday and Wednesday.

Claimants who filed over the weekend or during the day Monday should have received payments as usual. Those who filed Monday night or later have had benefits delayed, and should see their benefits payments over the next few days.

Payments for Tuesday through Thursday’s claims filings were processed and sent to the bank overnight and will be forwarded through the bank’s normal processing to debit cards or individuals’ direct deposit accounts in their own banks.
