Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) is set to expire July 25, 2020. FPUC provides an additional $600 weekly payment for unemployment insurance claimants that are receiving a weekly benefit. FPUC is part of the federal CARES Act.
Individuals were eligible for the $600 payments from March 29, until July 25, 2020, if they were receiving Regular Benefits (State Unemployment), Shared Work, Trade Readjustment Assistance, Disaster Unemployment Assistance, Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA), or Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC). If a claimant is owed retroactive payments that fall within the FPUC program’s time period, once they file and are approved, they will receive any benefits owed, including the FPUC $600 weekly benefit.
