Photo) Biweekly Payments Of Jobless Checks SACRAMENTO (AP) The state has decided to pay unemployment insurance recipients twice a month instead of week to cut down on office congestion and staff time. Gilbert L. Sheffield, director of the Department of Human Resources Development, announced Friday the switch to biweekly payments would be complete by midsummer at most unemployment insurance of- fices. Recipients in many areas of Southern California and the Central Valley and around San Francisco arc already being paid biweekly. Sheffield said of- fices in San Francisco and Oakland were expected to switch by July 1. A successful experiment started at the San Jose unemployment insurance office in March spear- headed the chance, with many recipients saying the biweekly payments save them bus money and job hunting time. Sheffield said some offices were experimenting with increased use of bills to save time. In Au- gust, he said, offices in Stockton and Modesto would experiment with payments by check instead of cash. Offices will continue to pay recipients on a weekly basis in cases of hardship, Sheffield added. The Weather Continued cloudy tonight with a chance of show- ers near the mountains.
