Indiana Unemployment Extension

Federally Extended benefits (EUC) will continue unchanged until Saturday, March 30, 2013. Beginning March 31, the federal government has mandated states must reduce benefits by 10.7%. The Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) will release additional information as it becomes available.

Unemployed Hoosiers who are finishing their first 26 weeks of regular state unemployment insurance and moving to federally funded extended benefits are now required to go to WorkOne for an in-person review of their work search records. Hoosiers who are required to visit a WorkOne will begin receiving notices in April. Anyone who fails will lose their unemployment insurance benefits. See DWD’s website for more information.

Beginning Sunday, September 2, 2012, federally extended unemployment insurance benefits reduced by 10 weeks. The change is a result of the federal legislation, which reauthorized the extended benefits earlier this year. Claimants who begin the federal extensions (week 27 of benefits and beyond) after Sunday, September 2, 2012 were eligible to receive a maximum of 63 weeks of benefits instead of 73.

Extended Benefits (EB)

Because the unemployment rate in Indiana recently dropped below a 3 month average of 9% unemployed Hoosiers will no longer be able to receive Extended Benefits, or EB. This program previously lasted for 20 weeks, from weeks 80-99 of the possible 99 weeks of benefits. The last day Hoosiers filed EB vouchers was Saturday, April 14, 2012. The last benefit payment for those receiving EB was made on Monday, April 16, 2012. No further EB payment is made after this date regardless of whether an EB recipient has weeks remaining in their claim. See DWD’s website for more information.
