Unemployment Insurance Benefit Expirations: Extended Benefits (EB) and Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC08)

Katelin P. Isaacs
Analyst in Income Security

Two key provisions related to extended federal unemployment benefits have recently expired or will soon expire.

The temporary 100% federal financing of the Extended Benefit (EB) program ends December 1, 2010.

In addition, authorization for the temporary Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC08) program expired the week on or before November 30, 2010 (i.e., November 27, 2010, in all states except New York state, in which the program ended November 29, 2010).

This report describes the consequences of these expirations for the financing and availability of unemployment benefits in states.

H.R. 6419, a bill that would have extended these expired unemployment insurance provisions through the end of February 2011, failed to pass in the House under suspension of the rules on November 18, 2010.
