Additional Benefits Update:
Extension to Unemployment Insurance Benefits Signed into Law

     

New! On Saturday, December 19, 2009, the President signed legislation approving a two-month extension for EUC 08 and Federal Additional Compensation.

According to the previous legisative extension, no new EUC 08 claims or new tiers could be filed after the week ending December 22, 2009, and no EUC 08 payments could be made byond the week-ending June 5, 2010.

Based on the new law, customers may now file for EUC 08 through February 28, 2010 and may be paid through July 31, 2010.

In addition, this new law allows the $25 weekly FAC payments to continue for claims filed through the week-ending February 27, 2010, and remain in effect for payments on those claims through September 4, 2010.

On November 6, the President signed into law a new unemployment insurance benefit extension program.

These additional benefits begin the week of November 8 and offer a maximum of 20 additional weeks of unemployment insurance benefits to eligible claimants.


If you are currently collecting Federal Emergency Unemployment Compensation, you will automatically have your benefits extended further, and will receive a revised monetary determination based on this latest extension, if you are eligible.

If you are currently collecting State Extended Benefits, you will continue in this program until your benefits are exhausted. At that point, the department will inform you of the procedure to collect additional federal benefits made possible through the latest extension.

If you have received extended benefits in the past and have exhausted these extended benefits, you may be eligible for this latest extension if:

  • You have a claim with a benefit year ending May 5, 2007 or later;
  • You have been totally or partially unemployed during the week you are claiming benefits; and
  • You continue to be able, available and actively seeking full-time work.
