District of Columbia Unemployment Extension
Federally funded EUC has come to an end as of Dec 2013, unless further actions are taken by the Senate it will continue to be unavailable. For now, applicants are requested to depend on regular UI benefits given by the state.
EB is also subject to unavailability as they depend on unemployment rates of the state. EB is given only during periods of high unemployment.
Following are the tiers for EUC
- Tier 1: allows up to 14 weeks of benefits
- Tier 2: allows up to 14 weeks of benefits if the current unemployment rate in the state is higher than or equal to 6%
- Tier 3: allows up to 9 weeks of benefits if the state unemployment rate is higher than or equal to 7%
- Tier 4: allows up to 10 weeks of benefits if the state unemployment rate is higher than or equal to 9%
No other changes have been made to UI over the years. The eligible candidates will continue to receive up to 26 weeks of benefits.
DC does not currently offer Extended Benefits (EB) to claimants.
