Utah Unemployment Extension

Federally funded EUC has been put a stop to. Until further rules are passed on the same, it will remain unavailable across all states of the U.S.

Until then, claimants can make use of the Extended Benefits (EB) that the state of Utah provides.

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).

    I opened my unemployment in March . I last filed on 6/20/2015. My daughter was in icu from 6/23/2015-7/17/2015. I was unable to file for these weeks but made my contacts. I got online 7/19/2015 and was told I had to reopen my case. I did so, I ask for a backdate of the weeks my daughter was in icu. I received a letter stating that my claim on 7/19/2015 could not be backdated. I don’t understand it… I asked for my old claim to be looked at they are saying it is my claim on 7/19/2015. Please help I have called every number only to be sent to someone else. I don’t think they listened to what I was saying. I will not get 3 weeks plus my waiting week to get payment! I have used all the money I had staying with my baby at the hospital. Please help me to find out what I can do. Thank you so much

      Margaret,

      I can understand your situation. Since the claims process is automated, not sure if they will be able to consider your request for backdating. If you’re not able to get thru with the right person, please see if you can visit the nearest office.
