Pennsylvania Unemployment Extension

Federally funded Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) has come to an end as of Dec 28, 2013 and will continue to remain unavailable until the Senate passes new rules on it.

Extended Benefits (EB) is provided only when unemployment rates are above a certain limit and its availability varies from state to state. As of now, EB is unavailable in the state of Pennsylvania.

In the meantime, claimants will have to depend on regular UI benefits which lasts for a period of 26 weeks until EB or EUC are made available. Applicants are also requested to visit their state’s UI agency website to find out about currently available Re-employment Assistance plans.
