null Who is eligible for MEUC?
MEUC is only payable to certain individuals who:
- received at least $5,000 of self-employment income in the most recent taxable year ending prior to the individual’s application for regular UC; and
- are eligible to receive at least one dollar ($1) of underlying unemployment benefits for the claimed week.
- Submit documentation substantiating self-employment income.
The application process will not move forward until the supporting documentation is provided. Failure to submit a completed application with the required supporting documentation will result in a denial of MEUC benefits. MEUC is NOT available for weeks claimants received Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA).
