Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation

Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation 

Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) is a supplemental benefit that is paid on top of an individual’s weekly benefit amount for state unemployment insurance benefits, Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation, Extended Benefits or Pandemic Unemployment Assistance.

The American Rescue Plan Act, signed into law by the President on March 11, 2021, extends the FPUC program through September 2021.

FPUC provides a $300 per week benefit from Dec. 27, 2020 – Sept. 4, 2021.

FPUC provided a $600 per week benefit from March 29 – July 25, 2020.

Note: If you do not receive at least $1 in benefits for a week because you earned excessive wages, you will not be eligible to receive FPUC for that week.
