Emergency Unemployment Compensation Available to Injured Workers in Pennsylvania

The Federal Government has created a temporary program known as Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC), which may be of benefit to injured workers in PA. EUC benefits can provide up to 13 weeks of additional unemployment compensation benefits to those unemployed folks who are not eligible for unemployment compensation benefits from Pennsylvania (or any other State).

While an injured worker in Pennsylvania cannot collect both workers’ compensation benefits and unemployment benefits in PA, this source of funds may be of use to those injured workers who are not currently receiving Pennsylvania workers’ compensation benefits (such as those individuals who have had their workers’ comp cases denied).

More information regarding UEC benefits, including how to apply and who is eligible for the program, can be obtained by visiting the PA Department of Labor & Industry website.
