Unemployment extension question

Have any of you received an extension on your unemployment after the 26 weeks? I was wondering does one have to apply for that, or is it automatically applied?

THANKS for any input.

  • I don't know for sure, but I think you have to apply for an extension. I would check with your unemployment office.

  • At least in CA, it is automatic. However, the amount of federal extension has been reduced.

    Check your state's Employment Development Department website. The info will be there.

  • It may vary by state, and not everyone is automatically approved for it. The U/E office may have additional info you need to provide to prove you qualify for it.
