    California Unemployment Benefits Extended Another 20 Weeks

    Millions of Californians have lost their jobs and are relying on unemployment benefits. However, those benefits usually only last for a few months, which means many people are reaching the end. California’s FED-ED program extends those benefits for another 20 weeks.

    “It basically goes ahead and furthers that claim,” said Loree Levy with the Employment Development Department. “It’s like an extension of your regular claim.”

    Usually, unemployment benefits are paid by a combination of businesses, and both the state and the federal government. The FED-ED program relies on federal funds.

    “We can now go ahead and receive 100 percent federal funding,” Levy said. “That boosts it up to 20 extra weeks of benefits for workers who are still struggling to get back to work.”
