Federal Provisions for Unemployment

The MEUC program paid an additional $100 per week in supplemental unemployment benefits to claimants who received regular unemployment or extension benefits and earned self-employment income in the year before their claim. You must apply for the program and meet all MEUC eligibility requirements under federal law.

MEUC payments are retroactive to December 27, 2020, and claimants could receive up to a total of 36 weeks of payments through September 4, 2021.

To receive MEUC benefits, you must:

  • Be eligible for benefits on a:
    • Regular Unemployment Insurance (UI) claim
    • Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC)
    • Federal-State Extended Duration (FED-ED) extension
      • Note: If you are collecting Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) or Training Extension (TE) benefits, you are not eligible for the MEUC program.
  • Be eligible to receive at least $1 in unemployment benefits, or have had your unemployment benefits applied to your overpayment, for each week between December 27, 2020, and September 4, 2021.
  • Apply for the MEUC program and provide documents that prove your net income (your pay after all taxes and deductions) from self-employment was at least $5,000. If your claim started in 2020, you need to have made at least $5,000 in 2019. If your claim started in 2021, you need to have made at least $5,000 in 2020.

Application Instructions

You must apply to receive MEUC benefits. Beginning June 30, 2021, if you are potentially eligible, we will send a message with application instructions to your UI Online inbox or an application by mail. Be sure to complete and return the application.

If you believe you may be eligible for MEUC benefits, but did not receive a message in your UI Online inbox, you can request an application by phone. Call the dedicated MEUC telephone line at 1-877-631-3247. This line is not for regular unemployment claims or for those checking on the status of a pending MEUC application.

After you apply, we will send a notice in the mail about your eligibility. If you are eligible, we will automatically add $100 to each week of your unemployment payments. You must continue to submit your weekly certifications.

The sooner you apply, the sooner you may qualify for the additional payment.

Important: The email notification cannot be transferred and is only sent to people who are potentially eligible for the MEUC program and have a current UI Online account. Do not forward the email to others who want to apply for the MEUC program. The UI system will identify additional claimants on a daily basis, and those people who are potentially eligible for the MEUC program will receive an email notice. Potentially eligible people who are not registered in UI Online, or were not identified by the system, will receive the Notice of Potential Eligibility (DE 6330MEUC) and a paper application by mail.

Claiming Unemployment in California: Your Options Now That Pandemic Federal Benefits Have Ended

An important note is that people who filed claims at the beginning of the pandemic but have not been back to work at all are not going to be eligible to file a new regular unemployment claim, says Daniela Urban, executive director of The Center for Workers’ Rights in Sacramento.

It's "[b]ecause they haven't had any new earnings, regardless of how far back they can go in their base period," she explained.

Two hands type on a laptop in front of a window.

If I'm eligible for a new claim, what do I need to know?

Be strategic with your timing 

If you have earned enough since your last claim to qualify for a new one, Urban recommends you think strategically about when you file — to maximize the amount and length of your new round of benefits.

A big reason why you should do this? Urban says EDD will never include the quarter of earnings in which you file your claim when it calculates your claim amount.

Since many people may have gotten work in the summertime before the delta variant really took hold, there’s a good chance you may have earnings in the third quarter of 2021, which runs between July 1 and Sept. 30. So, if you file in October, at the start of the fourth quarter — instead of September — EDD will consider those "Q3 earnings" when it calculates your benefits.

Consider whether your earnings will count

"The amount that you receive in unemployment is based on both your highest quarter of earnings as well as all of your earnings over the base period. So because many claimants didn't work for much of 2020, they might have a [higher] quarter of earnings recently like the most recent quarter or the quarter immediately preceding that,” Urban said.

People who’ve gotten back to work recently but then been laid off again should factor that into when they file, too, says Urban. That’s because, if you have just lost a new job, then your earnings from that quarter don't count.

"So whenever we're at the end of a quarter, especially like we are right now, if you've recently lost work and most of your new job was just in that one quarter, they're only going to use the earnings from the quarter before that and maybe even two quarters before that, depending on what your other earnings were, in order to calculate your base period earnings," said Urban.

Remember there are no longer extensions

Waiting to file has other benefits on top of making it more likely that folks’ higher earnings will be considered, "because now that there aren't extensions, the maximum you'll be able to get is the 26 weeks within a 52-week period," stressed Urban.

"So by delaying the start of that, you push back the time period where you start getting benefits. But that extends the time period for which you're able to collect those benefits if you still remain unemployed," she said.

In short: When you're deciding to file, weigh how you can balance including the periods where you earned the most — and consider that the longer you wait to file, the more months (and, hopefully, closer to a fuller economic recovery) your benefits will run.

CA EDD News Alert- Benefits Can Now Be Extended After September 4th

California EDD still awash in backlogged claims

California EDD claims are at their highest since April; nearly 1M job openings

KTVU FOX 2's Tom Vacar reports.

OAKLAND, Calif - Though jobs in California are growing at a faster rate than the nation, the hangover from the still ongoing pandemic is still very much with us.

The state lost 2.7 million jobs during the pandemic and still needs to add about 1 million to make up for the losses. 

According to the Center for Jobs and the Economy, California's initial unemployment claims, accounted for 22% of the nation's claims. That showed the state was being hit hard, because it had 22% of the jobless claims, but only 12% of the national labor force. 

California jobless claims are at their highest level since April.

Though Golden State jobs are growing faster than the nation, roughly a million California job openings are going unfilled and layoffs are once again rising. 

"Running well above other states and well above the national average," said labor lawyer and former EDD Director Michael Bernick.

The Employment Development Department has a notorious claims backlog that rose almost 9% to more than 192,000 jobless Californians who have waited three or more weeks to get paid.

One of them, Li Li Clever. has been waiting since April. 

"I've e-mailed them, you know, through their web site. I've called every conceivable number I can get my hands on," said Clever. 

EDD call centers still do not answer almost a third of their calls and callers need to make and average of 10 calls just to get through as Li Li ultimately did, 

"That's the one I waited for five and a half hours and they promised it was one the way. They said I've done everything that's necessary and then it never arrived," said Clever.

(There is a GoFundMe that is collecting donations to help Clever with her living expenses.)

So far into the pandemic, the state has now paid out nearly $175 billion. 

"That dwarfs the number of payments during the Great Recession," said Mr. Bernick. 

But, Li Li is still waiting and laments, "It's the not knowing but even worse is the lying; being lied to is the most distressing."

The state has already run up a $20 billion debt to Uncle Sam to make sure claimants got paid; money that will have to be paid back. 

"After previous recessions, the state increased the rate that employers were paying it in terms of for payroll taxes," said Bernick.

Workforce boards across the state say they have yet to see a meaningful uptick in jobseekers, even though Federal unemployment benefits expired early this month.
