SUBJECT: FEDERAL PANDEMIC UNEMPLOYMENT COMPENSATION BENEFITS (UCB) ENDED
On May 11, 2021, Missouri Governor Parson announced that Missouri will end payments of federal pandemic UCB.
Federal pandemic UCB types include but are not limited to:
- Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC)
- Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA)
- Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC)
- Mixed Earner Unemployment Compensation (MEUC)
The last weekly federal UCB payments issued to Missouri UCB recipients will be issued the week ending June 12, 2021. Payments for retroactive UCB may still be received.
As a condition of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021, federal UCB types were extended through September 6, 2021. UCB recipients who worked in other states may still receive federal pandemic UCB benefits. For recipients receiving UCB issued by other states, continue to budget UCB from federal funds per guidance issued in IM-38, dated April 13, 2021.
Regular UCB is not affected by this change.
Refer participants with questions about UCB to the Missouri Department of Labor and Industrial relations interactive site at uinteract.labor.mo.gov.
