As of this article’s publication in August 2020, those who have exhausted their unemployment benefits claims in Nevada may be eligible for 13 more weeks of regular employment insurance under the Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC). The PEUC is part of the federal government's CARES act in response to the sudden surge of unemployment across the United States due to the coronavirus pandemic. Although this federal program was implemented officially on May 10, 2020, insurance claimants may file for payments starting the week ending April 4, 2020. The PEUC is a temporary federal program that will run until the week ending December 26, 2020.
