Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) is a program under the CARES Act. This program adds an additional 13 weeks to a claimant’s unemployment benefits claim once they exhaust benefits. PEUC is also known as an extension. The federal government funds this program, not the state unemployment taxes paid by employers.
