PEUC provides an additional 13 weeks of unemployment compensation to eligible claimants who:

  • Have exhausted all rights to regular compensation under state or federal law with respect to a benefit year that ended on or after July 1st, 2019;
  • Have no rights to regular compensation with respect to a week under any other state unemployment compensation law or federal unemployment compensation law, or to compensation under any other federal law;
  • Are not receiving compensation with respect to a week under the unemployment compensation law of Canada; and
  • Are able to work, available to work.

Individuals who have exhausted their Tennessee Unemployment Compensation claim, or their benefit year has ended, need to refile to obtain the additional weeks of benefits provided through PEUC.

Claimants can refile their claim by accessing their account on Tennessee’s workforce development website, www.Jobs4TN.gov [1].
