CARES Act Expires December 26, 2020
By Texas Workforce Commission Posted 12-01-2020

Texas is not authorized to pay any federally funded pandemic-related unemployment claim benefits after 39 weeks from the date your claim started or after December 26, 2020, whichever comes first.


TWC cannot pay benefits on any pandemic-related claim after this date. Because all federal pandemic programs are expiring at the same time, you may not be eligible for any additional benefits under any claim program. You cannot appeal this deadline.


The expiration date for this pandemic unemployment benefits program was set under the terms of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), and cannot be changed without additional congressional action. For more information about the CARES Act, see:
