www.esd.wa.gov – Can your benefits be extended?

Washington currently has two different extensions available:

Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) is a program that pays up to 53 additional weeks of unemployment benefits.
Extended Benefits (EB) is a program that pays up to 20 additional weeks of unemployment benefits.
We must pay EUC before EB.

www.esd.wa.gov Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC)

Congress and the President approved a bill extending the dates Employment Security can pay emergency unemployment compensation (EUC) benefits by two months. EUC was scheduled to end on December 31, 2009, and has been extended until February 28, 2010. Payments were scheduled to end May 31, 2010, and now are scheduled to end July 31, 2010.
We mail paper applications to potentially eligible claimants.

Extended Benefits (EB)

The U.S. Department of Labor notified the state Employment Security Department that Washington qualifies for state extended benefits as a result of a rising unemployment rate. This state extended benefits program is different from the federally-funded Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program approved by Congress in 2008.

Though this program is effective the week of February 15, eligible claimants will continue on EUC until those benefits run out. At that time they may be eligible for state extended benefits.

EB pays up to 20 weeks of benefits. The first payable week is the week ending February 21, 2009.
We mail paper applications to potentially eligible claimants.
