On April 15, 2010, President Barack Obama signed the Continuing Extension Act of 2010 (P.L. 111-157), which extends the filing date for unemployed New Jersey workers to qualify for benefits under the federal Emergency Unemployment Compensation tiers to June 2, 2010. In addition, the new law extends the Federal Additional Compensation (FAC) program to June 2, 2010 and provides an additional federal weekly benefit of $25 to unemployment insurance claimants. Finally, under the new law, the federal government will continue to pay all of the benefits under the extended benefit program through June 2, 2010. The new law signed by the President does not provide additional tiers or extend the number of weeks of benefits.
