Last week the Federal enhanced unemployment benefits expired, erasing $600 weekly unemployment checks that had been going to New Yorkers who lost their jobs due to the COVID pandemic. There’s still a way to extend your unemployment benefits through the end of December 2020.

Through the New York Department of Labor New Yorkers can reapply for unemployment insurance after the 26 weeks of their traditional unemployment insurance runs out.

There are currently two extension programs: the Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation Program (PEUC), which was created by the Federal CARES Act, and the Extended Benefits Program (EB), which goes into effect under state law once the state reaches a certain level of high unemployment, which it has reached.

Under federal law, these programs are only available for individuals receiving traditional Unemployment Insurance (UI). Individuals receiving Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) benefits are not eligible for PEUC or EB benefits, but can receive up to 46 weeks of PUA benefits at this time.

Go to the NYS Dept of Labor page for the full details.
