Update Regarding Federal Unemployment Extensions
- Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) benefit reduction due to sequestration percentage has changed from 10.7 percent to 7.2 percent. For customers collecting EUC prior to October 5, 2013, this change means there is a smaller reduction to your weekly benefit amount due to the sequestration, which will result in an increase in your payment amount. The new reduction rate became effective October 1, 2013. The first payable week ending date was October 5, 2013. Sequestration does not affect the established end date of EUC. Under current law, although you may have a balance remaining, the last week EUC benefits can be paid is week ending December 28, 2013.
- As a result of federal law, Michigan is no longer eligible for Emergency Unemployment compensation (EUC) Tier 4 benefits after week ending April 20, 2013.
