Depending on how long you have been collecting unemployment you may have used up all that is available and will need to file an extension in order to continue to receive benefits. The good news is that congress has put in place unemployment extensions for up to 2 years out. In order to get the proper eligibility process underway to apply for an unemployment extension you will need to access your local unemployment office’s resources. To get links for your local unemployment office please select your State from the State map or the drop down menu.
