Unemployment insurance is compensation provided to a worker left without a job without his or her fault. Regular compensation normally runs around twenty-six weeks. There are extended benefits given for a longer period for those who have already exhausted their regular insurance during high employment periods. The extended program provides additional thirteen to twenty weeks benefits in states with high rates of unemployment.

All extended compensation is paid through the unemployment system of the state, so you should heck out your state’s unemployment office for more information on the benefits that you may qualify and how and when you will receive them. Do not forget that not who qualifies for the regular insurance could qualify for the extended benefits. Your state’s unemployment office will let you know if you qualify for the extension.

Your weekly extended benefit amount is the same as the amount you received in your regular unemployment insurance. The total amount of extended benefits you will get may be less than thirteen weeks or twenty weeks. Make sure that you are aware of the requirements t be able to qualify for the extended insurance program. Check out if your state offers extended compensation and plan ahead of time before your regular unemployment compensation runs out.
