Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) provides a temporary emergency increase of $300 per week. The $300 is on top of the existing weekly benefit payment. On Dec. 27, 2020, the stimulus bill renewed FPUC, that was originally $600 and expired July 25, 2020. Read CARES Act Extension FAQs for more information. Individuals must be eligible for unemployment benefits to qualify for the additional $300 per week. Individuals with pending issues preventing payment will not receive the additional $300 per week until they are allowed benefits.
Individuals do not need to do anything extra to receive the $300. Continue to file weekly claims.
