New York Governor Signs AB6091 to Extend Unemployment Benefits
The bill amends the trigger for state extended
benefits (EB), providing an option for a three-year look back period of unemployment
rates instead of a two-year look back. What
this means is that unemployed persons can continue collecting state extended benefits
after regular UI benefits and federal EUC is exhausted. For
state UI agencies and employers (private sector and non-profit), it means they can
continue to take advantage of the 100% federal funding of state EB that is in place
through the end of 2011.
