REMINDER ON PANDEMIC EMERGENCY UNEMPLOYMENT COMPENSATION (PEUC)
Last week, the Administration announced that Massachusetts residents who are eligible for the federal CARES Act and qualify for having exhausted their regular unemployment compensation may receive Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC).
As we’ve shared before, the PEUC program provides up to 13 weeks of unemployment insurance benefits to individuals who have exhausted their previous unemployment benefits. Individuals who have exhausted their UI benefits on or after July 6, 2019 may receive PEUC. Visit www.mass.gov/peuc for more information on eligibility and how to apply.
