Idaho Unemployment Extension
Federal budget reductions called “sequestration” are forcing a 10.7 percent cut in extended unemployment benefits for thousands of idled Idaho workers – at least through September 2012.
At its peak, the extended benefits program added a maximum of 27 to 73 weeks of payments to the 10 to 26 weeks provided under the traditional state program. As Idaho’s jobless rate declines, the extension was trimmed back three times in 2012 and again in February so additional weeks beyond regular state benefits total 10 to 28.
Extended Benefits (EB) – Program Ended
Under federal law, as of 2019, EUC benefits are no longer available.
Extensions for collecting UI payments are in effect only during periods of high unemployment and only if the state or federal government take specific action to provide extended benefits.
