More than 30,000 Tennesseans receiving federal unemployment benefits will see their payments reduced because of automatic federal budget cuts that took effect this month.

State labor officials say those affected will be notified by mail no later than March 22.

The cuts affected the Emergency Unemployment Compensation program. All EUC payments on or after March 31 will be reduced by nearly 11 percent through September.

The state's unemployment compensation system will not be reduced.
