Unemployed persons who have exhausted their emergency unemployed compensation benefits under a previously implemented EUC program, may be eligible for one to six weeks of benefits under a new tier of the program.
The South Carolina Employment Security Commission announced Tuesday that additional Federal Emergency Unemployment Compensation may be available to unemployed individuals now as a part of the Worker, Homeownership, and Business Assistance Act of 2009 passed by Congress. The ESC says claimants who need to report to their local workforce centers will receive notification from the Employment Security Commission by mail. Claimants who do not receive a notice in the mail are asked to continue filing their claims as usual. Those individuals will receive two monetary determinations by mail during the next two weeks. One will be for the extra week of benefits designated as EUC-Tier 2 and another for six extra weeks of benefits designated as EUC-Tier 4.
