The Employment Development Department (EDD) began accepting applications for the Mixed Earner Unemployment Compensation (MEUC) on June 30, 2021. MEUC pays an extra $100 per week in supplemental unemployment benefits to people who earned both regular wages and more than $5,000 in self-employment wages.
Starting June 30, EDD will begin sending text messages and emails to claimants who may qualify for MEUC. Paper applications will be mailed to people who are not online. Claimants will have until September 6, 2021 to apply for MEUC. (EDD News Release 21-38, June 25, 2021.)
