PEUC Unemployment Extension
If your current unemployment benefits are exhausted and you still have time left in your benefit year you can click here to apply for a 13-week federal extension of benefits called Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation, or PEUC.
PEUC is a brand new program being built from the ground up. We are accepting applications but processing has not yet begun. When system programming is complete, we will notify all applicants by letter that their claims are being processed.
If you are self-employed, an independent contractor or typically file a Form 1099, you can apply for COVID-19 related unemployment assistance, known as Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, or PUA. This is assistance for people who do not qualify for regular Unemployment Insurance.
