Utah Unemployment Extension
The dates for Federal Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) have been extended through the week ending December 28, 2013. Those who have not yet filed an EUC claim or those who have not exhausted all available tiers of an existing EUC claim may be eligible. The bill does not extend or add any new tiers of unemployment benefits for those who have exhausted all available tiers of their EUC benefits.
No EUC payments will be made after the week ended December 28, 2013.
Recent EUC legislation changes the current tier structure as defined below:
Tier One: Beginning September 2012, benefits have reduced from the maximum of 20 weeks to a new maximum of 14 additional weeks of benefits.
Tier Two: Utah has trigger off the second tier the week ending December 22, 2012.
Tier Three: Utah has trigger off the third tier the week ending April 7, 2012.
Workers in Utah who exhaust their regular UI benefits before they can find a job can currently receive up to 14 additional weeks of benefits through the temporary federal Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program enacted in 2008.
Utah does not offer Extended Benefits (EB). Hence maximum total number of weeks currently available is 40 weeks (Regular benefits – 26 +EUC – 14).
