Federally Extended Benefits (EEUC) Reduced Beginning Monday, April 8, 2013
Due to automatic federal spending cuts, known as sequestration, beginning Monday, April 8, 2013, weekly payments of Federally Extended Unemployment Insurance benefits, also known as EEUC, or weeks 27-63 of benefits, will be reduced by 10.7% as determined by the U.S. Department of Labor. This reduction will remain in effect for each week through September 2013. Regular State Unemployment Insurance benefits, or weeks 1-26, will not be affected.

New Requirements to Receive Benefits
Unemployed Hoosiers who are finishing their first 26 weeks of regular state unemployment insurance and moving to federally funded extended benefits are now required to go to WorkOne for an in-person review of their work search records. The new in-person review is part of the federal law Congress passed in February reauthorizing the federally funded extended benefits through the end of the year. Reviews will also be required for those transitioning from the first round of federal benefits to the second if they have not previously participated. Hoosiers who are required to visit a WorkOne will begin receiving notices in April. Anyone who fails to comply risks losing their unemployment insurance benefits.
