Unemployment Insurance Benefits Extensions Update

DLIR announced over the weekend that programming updates and federal funding have allowed the department to offer a choice of either Extended Benefits (EB20) or Pandemic Unemployment Emergency Compensation (PEUC) for claimants who filed for EB20 between Dec. 15, 2020 and Dec. 28, 2020. The Continued Assistance Act (CAA) was signed into law extending Coronavirus, Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act unemployment provisions last month. The department has already sent emails to claimants who filed in that time frame. The claimants will have until Friday, Feb. 5 at 5:30 p.m. to choose one of the two options. Those who do not respond will automatically be processed for EB20. To view more:
