Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) provides 13 additional weeks of unemployment payments to workers who have already exhausted their regular Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits.
PEUC was extended until September 6, 2021, after President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 into law.
It 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.
