Pennsylvania Unemployment Extension

Pursuant to the federal Budget Control Act of 2011, Public law, 112-25, mandatory federal budget cuts, known as “sequestration,” recently went into effect. Emergency Unemployment Compensation, EUC, benefits will be reduced by 10.7%, beginning with the week ending April 6, 2013 through the week ending September 28, 2013.

Claimants who are already receiving EUC will receive a Revised Notice of Financial Determination which will provide your new weekly benefit.

Claimants who begin receiving EUC with the week ending April 6, 2013, or later will receive a financial determination which does not reflect the EUC benefit reduction. When the first EUC payment is issued, the department will send a revised Notice of Financial Determination that will indicate the reduced EUC weekly benefit rate.

Pennsylvania has no control over this required federal reduction in benefits and no ability to waive or reduce the level of reduction

NOTE: If you are currently receiving regular UC benefits, your regular UC benefits will NOT be changed or affected by this federal reduction. However, if your regular UC benefits end on or after April 6 and you are eligible for emergency, or EUC, benefits, your EUC benefit amount will be affected by the federal sequestration.

Total available weeks currently available in Pennsylvania is 63 weeks (Regular 26 weeks+ EUC 37 weeks)

Note: Currently Pennsylvania does not offer extended benefits (EB).

Questions & Answers

  1. Melinda says:

    I was laid off last year by my previous employer. I have since started a part time job and am receiving partial unemployment. My BYE date is 8/02/2014. I am working for a school and expect to be laid off in late June and will not return to work until late August early September. Will I be able to start a new claim through my part time employer or can I receive an extension after my initial claim ending 8/2/14 expires?

      If you’re referring to EUC which is a federal benefit,you will have to wait until they are extended.
