This information provides you with alternative assistance options if you have already received or will soon receive your final unemployment insurance extension payment.
Once your final check arrives, you will have exhausted all of the unemployment benefits, including extensions, to which you are currently entitled. You may be eligible for assistance from other state agencies and non-profits to help you make ends meet while you continue to look for employment. Information regarding cash assistance, food and nutrition assistance, child care, transportation, housing, home energy and heating, health care, health insurance, consumer protection, and more is provided on our website under Assistance Programs.
