Unemployment benefits extended to 20 weeks
Unemployment benefits in Minnesota are now extended to 20 weeks under the recently amended federal Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) law.
In June, EUC was passed to provide 13 weeks of unemployment benefits. Now, some workers will be eligible for 20 weeks.
Additional weeks may be provided due to the recent rise in Minnesota's unemployment rate.
Workers may be eligible for up to 33 weeks of benefits.
