Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC)

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act creates a new temporary federal program called Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC).

PEUC provides up to 13 weeks of additional unemployment benefits to individuals who previously collected state or federal unemployment compensation (UC) but exhausted those benefits.

Please read the following FAQs for information on whether there are any actions you need to take or whether you will be automatically enrolled. Additional information and how to apply online is available on the File for PEUC page.
