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.
