Federal Unemployment Compensation Extended Until April 10

The Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) has started rolling out its program with an 11-week extension which was issued by the Continued Assistance Act. Claimants will have additional 11 weeks of benefits payable for the week ending January 2 through March 13, with a phaseout until April 10. The payment will also include the additional $300 Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation weekly benefit.

“We’re pleased to have fully restored the PEUC program that so many workers in our state are depending on. These are vital programs that have helped Hawaii residents to provide for their families as we continue to navigate COVID-19,” said Anne Perreira-Eustaquio, Director of Hawaii Department of Labor & Industrial Relations.

“While this is a huge step forward, we know there’s still more work to do to ensure everyone receives the benefits they are entitled to.”
