You do not need to do anything. We will automatically add the federal unemployment compensation to each week of benefits that you are eligible to receive.
Any unemployment benefits through the end of the program will still be eligible for the extra $300, even if you are paid later.
For weeks of unemployment between March 29 and July 25, 2020, we are paying $600 in federal unemployment compensation on top of your current weekly benefit amount.
Note: Pandemic Additional Compensation, also known as Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC), is a taxable income and is reported to the IRS.
