Back in March and April, many claims expired when they hit the one year mark. Some people were eligible for a new regular UI claim after their claim expired, and some were not.
- If you were eligible for a new claim, but your new weekly benefit amount was drastically lower, we put you on PEUC and deferred your regular UI claim, or in other words, put it on hold.
- If your claim was deferred, you need to claim each week as normal.
- You will serve a waiting week starting the week of Sept. 5, and then you will start receiving benefits from your regular UI claim.
- Your weekly benefit amount will change, and you will no longer receive the $300 weekly FPUC payments.
- If you were not eligible for a new claim when your claim expired, you were also put on PEUC.
- You should file a new initial claim to see if you are now eligible.
- Unfortunately, if you have exhausted (zero balance) your regular UI benefits AND your claim has not expired yet, your benefits will stop after you claim the week of Sept. 4.
