Are the FPUC payments retroactive?

The original FPUC program provided eligible claimants with an additional $600 weekly benefit under the CARES Act, which ended on July 31, 2020. The new Continued Assistance Act version of FPUC provides an additional $300 in weekly benefits from January 2, 2021 to September 4, 2021. FPUC payments are not eligible for weeks from July 31, 2020 through the weeks ending on or before December 26, 2020. Retroactive payments will be made for any eligible weeks starting with the week ending January 2, 2021.
