Connecticut and Minnesota triggered on extended benefits (EB) when their seasonally adjusted total unemployment rates exceeded 8.0%. The payable period began on August 2, 2020 and eligible claimants can extend their benefits up to 20 weeks. Connecticut and Minnesota will notify claimants of potential eligibility via a written notice but claimants should contact their state agency for more information about the EB program or for information about their rights under the program.
