As of December 28, 2013, the federal unemployment extension program has ended. Unless Congress and the President agree to renew the extensions, no more federal extension benefits can be paid for weeks ending after December 28, 2013. With the end of the federal extension program, the Reemployment and Eligibility Assessment Emergency Unemployment Compensation (REA EUC) program has also ended.

If Congress and the President make an agreement to renew the extensions and reauthorize the REA EUC program:

The EDD is closely monitoring the situation in Washington D.C. for any developments regarding federal extension benefits and the reauthorization of the REA EUC program. For right now, no further Congressional action has been taken. So there is no need to contact us about restarting a federal extension at this time. We strongly encourage our customers to visit the New Developments on Federal Unemployment Extensions and Benefits page and continue to monitor the EDD Facebook or EDD Twitter pages for any further developments.
