Federal unemployment extensions expire beginning this Sunday

Eligible individuals will receive benefits for the weeks they have remaining on their regular state Unemployment (UI) and the four federal extensions (EEUC), but will not begin the next tier of benefits after November 30, 2010 (see below). DWD estimates about 4,000 Hoosiers per week will exhaust their benefits and thus not have a voucher to file beginning Sunday, December 5, 2010. 

The Extended Benefit (EB) program does not have a phase-out period. According to federal law, all Extended Benefit payments will stop immediately on Sunday, December 12, 2010. Approximately 16,000 Hoosiers are currently receiving extended benefits.

Beginning December 19, 2010, the $25 weekly federal additional payment will also expire due to federal law.

Hoosiers attempting to determine how many weeks of benefits they have remaining should go to http://www.in.gov/dwd/files/Remaining-Benefits.jpg for step-by-step instructions.
