Additional $600 ending (FPUC)

Updated: Feb 10

The additional $600 will be ending soon and people are wondering how it'll all work out for them.


If your next certification is 7/26:

7/12 - 7/18 will include the additional $600 (assuming week qualifies as eligible)

7/19 - 7/25 will include the additional $600 (assuming week qualifies as eligible)


Your next certification on 8/9 will NOT include the 600


If your certification lands on 8/2:

7/19 - 7/25 will include the additional $600 (assuming week qualifies as eligible)

7/26 - 8/1 you can qualify for your weekly benefit amount that is shown on your main page, but it will NOT include the additional 600


The House as passed the HEROES Act. The Senate still has to vote on it. As of now, extending the additional 600 is still up in the air.



Additional information about the $600 from CARES:

Also known as FPUC - Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation

  • The additional $600 will start paying out on week ending on 4/4/20 and will stop at the end of July.

  • It will not be retroactive prior to the week ending on 4/4/20 since the CARES Act was only signed on March 27, 2020. April 4, 2020 is the first Saturday after a full week has passed since it was signed.

  • If you already had an unemployment claim open, the additional 600 will be added to your account automatically
