Congress Considers Extension of Emergency Unemployment Benefits

Posted by Marc Smith | Dec 08, 2010 | 0 Comments

As you may have seen in the news, the United States Congress is currently considering an extension of the Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) Program as part of President Obama's compromise legislation. At this time, the legislation has not been passed and the EUC Program has not been extended.

As noted by the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation (“DLLR”), if the legislation is passed and signed by the President, the DLLR will take immediate action to reinstate the program. According to the DLLR, if the EUC Program is extended it will not add any additional weeks of benefits. If you have exhausted your EUC benefits, no additional benefits will be available.

For more information, check out the DLLR website.
