Mississippi Unemployment Extension
Updated : June 12th, 2019
EUC is a Federal temporary extension of unemployment compensation for unemployed individuals who have already collected all regular state benefits for which they were eligible.
These benefits are available for weeks of unemployment ending on or before January 1, 2014. This means that the last payable week of EUC benefits in most states will be the week ending December 28, 2013.
There is no “phase- out” period for EUC payments. All EUC payments will cease when the program ends.
- Tier 1: 14 weeks
- Tier 2: Up to 14 weeks
- Tier 3: Up to 9 weeks
Total available weeks currently available in Mississippi is 63 weeks (Regular 26 weeks+ EUC 37 weeks)
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.
