Hoosiers are now eligible to resume collecting the federally funded unemployment extensions. Approximately 90,000 Hoosiers who exhausted or were at risk of losing benefits have become eligible again.
In order to qualify for these retroactive benefits, Hoosiers will need to complete their weekly vouchers through Uplink, Indiana’s online filing system. Hoosiers will need to complete a voucher for each week of benefits they want to collect.
About 30,000 Hoosiers saw an interruption in their benefits due to Congressional delay.
There is no increase in the number of potential weeks of benefits. Ninety-nine weeks remains the maximum length of time someone can collect.
