Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) is a program under the CARES Act. It provides for a temporary emergency increase of $600 per week. The $600 is on top of the existing weekly benefit payment. The federal government funds this program, not the state unemployment taxes paid by employers. The $600 increase applies to benefits, effective for weeks March 29, 2020-week ending July 25, 2020.
Individuals do not need to do anything extra to receive the $600. Continue to file weekly claims.
