The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment has set Oct. 26 as the new deadline by which people on unemployment must certify their eligibility if they want to claim Lost Wages Assistance program payments.

State officials estimate that between 70,000 and 80,000 Coloradans eligible for the program known as LWA have not called or logged into the state’s automated system to certify that they were out of work because of the COVID-19 pandemic during the period the program covers.

That certification is required for people who are collecting state benefits to claim the $300 per week in extra support, up to $1,800 total, for the weeks between July 26 and Sept. 5.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency awarded Colorado $553 million to pay eligible people through the LWA program. So far the state has sent out about $350 million in payments, labor department deputy executive director Cher Haavind said, leading officials to extend the certification period by a few weeks.

“We certainly don’t want these funds to go to waste, and we want individuals who could benefit from these additional funds to take advantage of this program,” Haavind said.

The state is planning an outgoing call and email campaign to reach eligible people.

The IRS announced on Monday that it has extended the deadline for non-filers to Saturday, Nov. 21, from the previous Oct. 15 cut-off date.

The deadline applies specifically to people who do not typically file tax returns, usually because they have little to no income, and therefore do not have their information on file with the IRS.

Those who are eligible to use the non-filer tool include individuals with incomes below $12,200 who were not claimed as dependents by someone else, and married couples who earn less than $24,400. Homeless individuals and families also qualify.

Ardian’s project, which has has yet be detailed, is “in the interest of Suez — its shareholders, its employees, its clients and all its stakeholders,” the water and waste-treatment company said in a statement on Sunday after the board reviewed the plan. The Ardian proposal is “built around growth,” and would allow for an employees’ shareholding to double, it added.

Suez said earlier Sunday it still considers Veolia’s approach to be hostile, adding further tension to a multi-stranded saga that’s drawn in the French government, and damping hopes that recent discussions could pave the way for a friendly tie-up between the two French giants.

Veolia’s offer to buy a 29.9% stake in Suez from French energy utility Engie SA for 3.4 billion ($4 billion) is seen as a prelude to a takeover of the whole company. The bid is set to expire Monday, putting pressure on Engie and Suez, which has also expressed concern about the risk of “creeping control” from Veolia.

The government, which holds 24% of Engie, has said a deal must not be hurried. French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire told reporters Sunday that an agreement between Suez and Veolia is still possible.
