If you currently have an open UI claim, there is nothing for you to do other than continue filing your weekly certification. You cannot apply for any UI programs in advance, so you must wait for the week after your benefits are exhausted to apply for PEUC.
If you have exhausted the maximum amount of regular UI benefits available to you and are unable to file a new claim until your current benefit year expires, you will be eligible for up to 13 weeks of additional benefits through the PEUC program. When you log in to your claim there will be an option on the left navigation that says “Apply for Federal Extension Benefits.”
If you remain totally or partially unemployed when your benefit year ends, you must file a new application for regular UI before your PEUC application can be considered.
