End of the Pandemic Unemployment Benefits – What Rights Do I Have?

Three main programs expired in DC as of this past Saturday, September 4: Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation, or PEUC, which extends the time claimants can receive regular unemployment ("UI") benefits; Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation, or FPUC, which gives claimants an extra $300 per week; and Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, or PUA, which pays benefits to claimants who aren't eligible for regular UI. However, claimants who get regular UI or PEUC may continue to be eligible for some benefits, and we encourage anyone who stops getting benefits but thinks they may still be eligible to call DOES at 202-724-7000.
