Week ending December 29, 2013: Ending of Emergency Unemployment Compensation 

Updated January 3, 2013

The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 was passed by Congress and signed by the President, extending deadlines for Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) through December 2013.  The legislation does not change the number of weeks of benefits available under the EUC program. 

Please continue to claim weekly benefits in the usual manner, unless you receive instructions to file a new claim. 

Please note that the Extended Benefits (EB) program ended in New York State on December 9, 2012.  At this time, we do not expect the EB program to return.  EB is only available when the Total Unemployment Rate is at least 110% of the average for any or all of the corresponding three-month periods ending in the three preceding calendar years.  Our unemployment rate does not meet these requirements.
