Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) is a temporary federal program that gives an additional $300 per week in unemployment benefits to workers who became unemployed because of COVID-19 restrictions and shut-downs.
In March, 2021, the FPUC payments were extended until September 6, 2021, after President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 into law.
FPUC was created as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which was signed by President Trump in March, 2020 in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
