Utah Unemployment Extension
Updated : February 5th, 2019
Federally funded EUC has been put a stop to. Until further rules are passed on the same, it will remain unavailable across all states of the U.S.
Until then, claimants can make use of the Extended Benefits (EB) that the state of Utah provides.
No EUC payments will be made after the week ended December 28, 2013.
Recent EUC legislation changes the current tier structure as defined below:
Tier One: Beginning September 2012, benefits have reduced from the maximum of 20 weeks to a new maximum of 14 additional weeks of benefits.
Tier Two: Utah has trigger off the second tier the week ending December 22, 2012.
Tier Three: Utah has trigger off the third tier the week ending April 7, 2012.
Workers in Utah who exhaust their regular UI benefits before they can find a job can currently receive up to 14 additional weeks of benefits through the temporary federal Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program enacted in 2008.
Utah does not offer Extended Benefits (EB). Hence maximum total number of weeks currently available is 40 weeks (Regular benefits – 26 +EUC – 14).

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.
