Iowa Unemployment Extension

When either the national or Iowa unemployment rates exceed a certain level, you may be entitled to additional weeks of benefits after exhausting all regular benefits. If an extended benefit period is declared and it appears that you qualify, you will be notified to contact Iowa Workforce Development.

The Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 extended Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) benefits through the week ending December 29, 2012. The law provided a new unemployment rate for Tier 2, which Iowa did not meet effective June 24, 2012.

EUC is available for a maximum of 20 weeks with qualifying earnings through September 2, 2012, when the maximum with qualifying earnings will be 14 weeks until the program ends on December 29, 2012.All EUC recipients are eligible for Reemployment Services and Eligibility Assessments.

  1. Dave Hartman says:

    I am on unemployment right now, it will be running out about sometime in March. So if I’m not called back yet to my job am I able to reapply for unemployment for an extension? I believe I have the third quarter yet to pull from? I don’t know for sure it’s just a guess. Could you please let me know?

    Thanks
