How and when will I receive MEUC benefits

Individuals determined eligible will receive MEUC benefits in the same way they receive their underlying unemployment benefit.

Claimants can expect to receive payments 30 – 60 days after their application has been determined eligible. Failure to submit a completed application with the required supporting documentation will result in a denial of MEUC benefits. MEUC benefits will not be paid until a claimant uploads the required documentation and the Kansas Department of Labor (KDOL) determines that the amount of self-employment income meets MEUC eligibility requirements.
