What happens next?
Here are all the programs about Unemployment Insurance in big strokes. Check out links for details. What happens after I run out of money in my claim?
Below is a quick breakdown of how many weeks you may qualify for so you know what will happen with your benefits
Most people applied in March meaning your benefits are probably going to run out soon.
ALL PROGRAMS ARE AUTOMATIC - There is no need to "apply" for anything but your initial claim
Regular UI (w2 worker): - Regular UI: 26 weeks
You must hit 0.00 in your balance to trigger PEUC
You will receive a $0.00 letter that says you do not have enough wages
Then you will receive a notice saying you were automatically filed for PEUC
- PEUC: 13 weeks + 11 weeks with new stimulus = total 24
You must hit 0.00 in your balance to trigger FED-ED consideration
- FED-ED: 13 weeks + 7 weeks with unemployment rate being high = total 20
IF YOU DO NOT QUALIFY FOR FED-ED - EDD will file for PUA automatically for you
