Question :
Are there going to be any more Unemployment Insurance extensions? Am I eligible?
Answer :
You should contact your local Iowa Workforce Development office to see if any extensions are currently in effect. Extended benefits are initiated by the Federal Government, when either the national or Iowa unemployment rates exceed a certain level, you may be entitled to additional weeks of extended benefits after exhausting all regular benefits. If extended benefits become available, you will be notified by mail. If you worked in another State, besides Iowa in the last 18 months, please check with your local Iowa Workforce Development office to see if you can file an unemployment insurance claim against another State other than Iowa.
