Make sure TWC has your current address. You can find more information about the benefit extensions below.

  1. I have exhausted all my benefits, therefore I was out of work since April – July 7th. Will I be allowed to request payments for the months I did not receive unemployment because no extensions allowed. My time to reply is July 15th, therefore I wanted to know before I request payment

    1. Please speak the representatives of the labor dept in your state first.

      If you have exhausted all the benefits,chances are that you will not receive any further extension as they are not available.

      Please keep a track of national news on employment and apply if/when extended.
