North Carolina Unemployment Extension
EUC08, or Emergency Unemployment Compensation 2008, is an extension of unemployment benefits authorized under Federal law.
Effective with the week ending September 8, 2012, the EUC08 benefits program will provide a new maximum number of weeks for each Tier.
|Tiers||Number of Weeks|
|Tier 1||14 weeks|
|Tier 2||14 weeks|
|Tier 3||9 weeks|
|Tier 4||10 weeks|
Claimants who filed an initial claim effective on or after May 7, 2006 are potentially eligible for EUC08. Individuals who are monetarily disqualified when a new benefit year is filed may qualify for EUC08 on the basis of a previous claim.
The EUC Tier you’re qualified for as of December 22, 2013 is your final Tier. No EUC payments can be made for weeks ending after December 28, 2013.
