Florida Unemployment Extension

Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) is a federal extension after regular Florida reemployment assistance benefits. EUC benefits are broken into four tiers or levels:

  • EUC Tier I:  Provides up to 20 additional weeks of benefits.
  • EUC Tier II:  Provides up to 14 additional weeks of benefits.
  • EUC Tier III:  Provides up to 13 additional weeks of benefits.
  • EUC Tier IV:  Provides up to six additional weeks of benefits.

EUC benefits are available to claimants who exhausted all entitlement to regular benefits. The last week an individual can receive EUC under any tier is the week ending December 28, 2013.

In order to be eligible for EUC, your final regular reemployment assistance benefit payment must be for the week ending December 21, 2013 or earlier. If you qualify, an EUC claim will be filed automatically and a determination letter will be sent to you within seven days after you claimed your last weeks of reemployment assistance.

If you have been receiving EUC benefits and you received a final payment notice for  EUC Tier I, II, or III, you will receive a determination letter of monetary entitlement in the mail and will automatically be enrolled in the next level of EUC. However, the last week payable on the EUC program is the week ending December 28, 2013 regardless of any benefits remaining on the claim.

If you did not receive an EUC determination letter within seven days after you claimed your last weeks of unemployment, contact us at 1-800-204-2418, press option 2 for assistance.

Questions & Answers

    Since there are so many people still out of work, why isn’t an extension of benefits been put in place. I am now 60 and this is the longest time since Jan 2014 that I have not worked and I only received 16 weeks of Fl unemployment, for which I have lived since 11 months old. Now at my age and 2014 graduates I feel someone needs to look into this and give us a reason why Dec 28, 2013 is the cut off date for extensions.
    Thanks, awaiting your immediate reply

      You want to know why there is no more Unemployment Extension? Stupid working class now out of work people voting for rich and greedy republicans who think anyone one on unemployment is to lazy to go out and get another job.

    How long will this go on for? When will the extension in Florida happen? People who have not found jobs yet are looking at loosing their homes. We worked many years and now need help and can not count on congress to help us. Everything is a priority as we are not. This is not fair to all of us. Please do the right thing as many others are suffering trying to help us. Please!

  7. Charles Cape says:

    I read something about Florida’s unemployment benefits are 100% federally funded, how can this be? I have received benefit checks since August 2013 and now received a letter saying “Emergency Unemployment Compensation is Ending. Does this apply to me? Why am I on “emergency” compensation as I have only been receiving since August 2013?
