How and when do I get the additional $300 in benefits?

The Continued Assistance Act included an additional $300 in weekly payments for eligible unemployed claimants. Individuals who are eligible and file claims each week will be paid for those past weeks after January 2, 2021.

If you are eligible, you will automatically receive the FPUC payment once the program is available in Kansas. You must file a weekly claim for the underlying unemployment benefit you are currently receiving to qualify for FPUC payments.
