100% Federal Funding of Extended Benefits (EB) Expired on December 31, 2013
In general, EB provides benefits to individuals who have exhausted regular state benefits and Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC). Though typically 50% Federally funded and 50% state funded, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 began temporary 100% Federal funding of EB. The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (P.L. 112-240) extended 100% Federal funding of EB to December 31, 2013. To date, Congress has not passed any further extensions.
