Find out when your last $600 FPUC payment is
With all those dates being thrown around, when will the last time I actually receive the $600 be?
You may have heard about different dates with regards to when the weekly $600 FPUC (Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation) ends. July 31st? July 25th? July 26th? What happens if your certification date falls after that date? Do you still get the $600?
Our hotline has received multiple emails from people confused about when exactly the last time they receive their $600 is, or whether that date has already passed. In this article we will clear up the confusion so that you know when your last $600 payment will be, and can plan ahead.
The official end date of the FPUC is July 31st. That is when the law expires. However, the 31st falls on a Friday and the FPUC does not pay for partial weeks. So for all practical matters, the end of the first full work week is when the extra money will stop. On most states the end of the work week is a Saturday, while a few states end their work week on a Sunday. Regardless, this means that despite the official July 31st expiration date, the FPUC will actually end on July 25th for most of us
So now to answer the question, when is the LAST $600 payment going to be? The short answer is, that it will be added the last time for the week of July 19th-July 25th, and when you certify for that week, it will be the last time you receive the FPUC.
Different states have different schedules for certifying. But regardless of what day you actually certify for that week or when the date when money is deposited in your bank, you will receive the $600 for that week.
Let's look at a few different scenarios:
