Extended Benefits (EB) Unemployment Compensation
The weekly benefit amount of Extended Benefits is the same as the individual received for regular unemployment compensation. The total amount of Extended Benefits that an individual could receive may be fewer than 13 weeks or fewer than 20 weeks, depending on the state unemployment rate.
How to Collect Extended Benefits
Extended Benefits are paid through the state unemployment system. When a State begins an Extended Benefit period, it notifies those who have received all of their regular benefits that they may be eligible for Extended Benefits.
Check with your State Unemployment Office for information on what benefits you are entitled to.
