Prison Inmates Collect Unemployment - Pennsylvania officials say they are moving to correct an huge mistake that allowed inmates in county jails to collect unemployment benefits from behind bars. All they had to do is get someone to call the unemployment office every two weeks and a check would either be mail, direct deposited or sent to a debit card. The Philadelphia Daily News said 1,162 inmates got an average of $344 a week. Those caught collecting represented 13 percent of Philly's 9,000 prisoners. If 13 percent of the 34,500 county prisoners statewide collected, the total take would be $27.7 million. This happened because a Pennsylvania labor department database was only set up to cross-check applicants' Social Security numbers with those of people serving time in state or federal prisons. County jails weren't included. They say they believe this was happening for 16 years. Corbett is stopping the program and says it will saves 18 million annually. If you multiple 18 million dollars times 16 that's almost an estimated 200 million dollars lost total from the program.
