BOISE -- Thousands of out-of-work Idahoans are seeing their extended unemployment benefits come to an end.

The extension, implemented in mid-2008 to limit the impact of the recession, expired last week.

Over 6,000 workers receiving extensions will get their final payment this week.

The payments averaged about $250 per person.

Regular state benefits of 10 to 26 weeks continue for some 15,000 workers who have yet to find new jobs.
