Mixed Earners Unemployment Compensation (MEUC) is a temporary federal program that was started on December 27, 2020, with the passing of the first extension of the CARES Act.
The MEUC program provides for $100 per week in supplemental benefits for persons receiving unemployment benefits based on regular employment that required a W2 and also earned over $5000 in net income from self-employment in the most recent taxable year. All states except Idaho and South Dakota have chosen to offer the MEUC program. Those persons receiving PUA are not eligible for MEUC benefits.
