Some jobless benefits are set to expire tomorrow for over 11,000 Alabama residents.
Reports say the emergency unemployment benefits are set to end because of congress leaving for the year without extending federal aid for the long-term employed.
The program began in 2008 during the recession and was designed to supplement state benefits.
As the deadline is briskly approaching, President Obama and democrats in Congress are calling for another extension.
Alabama's unemployment rate is 6.2 percent, with some counties sitting at double digits.
