There is now a Work Search Requirement for Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) - Federal law now requires EUC recipients to:
Conduct an active search for work every week.
Maintain a detailed record of their employer contacts.
Provide their work search records to the state upon request.
Individuals’ work search records will be randomly selected to ensure that EUC recipients are meeting the state’s work search requirements.
IMPORTANT: State law requires claimants to make a minimum of three work contacts each week. Click here to access the EUC Work Search Form.
Reemployment and Eligibility Assessments (EUC/REA) for all claimants filing for EUC Tier I or transitioning into Tier II.
Federal law now requires UI claimants who file for EUC Tier I or transition into Tier II to attend a scheduled EUC/REA Orientation. These individuals will receive a letter with the following information.
- Orientation date, time and location will be indicated on EUC/REA letter mailed to the claimant.
- Instructions to complete and submit work search log at the orientation.
- Instructions to complete and submit an Eligibility Review Plan (ERP) at the orientation.
This orientation requirement is mandatory. Failure to report to a scheduled EUC/REA Orientation will result in an interruption in your unemployment insurance benefits payments.
