Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) Program Scheduled to End

Under the provisions of current federal law, the EUC program will end and no EUC benefits, regardless of the tier, can be paid for any week after the week ending December 28, 2013.

Individuals will not be eligible for a EUC payment for any week of unemployment after the week ending December 28, 2013 even if you are currently receiving EUC and still have a balance remaining on your EUC claim. It is important to note that if you exhaust all tiers of EUC benefits available to you with a payment for a week of unemployment prior to the week ending December 28, 2013, your EUC payments will end with the earlier week.
