Missouri “triggered off” of the unemployment Extended Benefits (EB) program, making claimants no longer eligible for the benefits provided by this program. The last payable week on the EB program will be the week ending October 10, 2020. Benefits under the EB program cannot be paid to any claimant for weeks of unemployment after October 10, 2020, regardless of any residual EB balances. Individuals who receive benefits with the EB program may be eligible for the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) program instead. Individuals may apply for PUA at UInteract.labor.mo.gov.
For additional information about PUA benefits, please visit: labor.mo.gov/sites/labor/files/Pandemic_Unemployment_Assistance_bri.pdf. For more information about other federal unemployment programs, please visit labor.mo.gov/coronavirus.
