Additional Unemployment Compensation Benefits During the Great Recession: Recipients and Their Post-Claim Outcomes
Publisher: Washington, DC: Mathematica Policy Research

- Over 45 percent of the recipients we studied collected additional weeks of benefits through the EUC08/EB benefits, a larger fraction of UC recipients than served by past emergency benefits programs.
- Recipients who collected EUC08/EB benefits were more likely than those who collected only UI benefits to have difficulties in securing or maintaining employment.
- The availability of extra weeks of UC benefits was correlated with less employment during the three years following the initial claim and no change in longer-term employment.
- The recipients we studied derived a modest amount of financial support from ARRA provisions that increased the monetary value of benefits.
