If you are eligible to receive benefits from Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) and Extended Benefits (EB), we will adjust your benefits. You don’t need to do anything. Your benefit will be paid automatically.
If you’ve exhausted all your benefits before ‘waiting week’ funds have been released and no funds are remaining from your claims to pay, you won’t receive any additional payments.
For example, with regular Unemployment Insurance (UI), you get 26 weeks of benefits. Waiving the ‘waiting week’ does not give you an extra week of benefits, it simply pays that first week. If you’ve already received your 26 weeks of UI benefits, you don’t have any more weeks left.
