Texans Return to Work Roundtable
Posted 05/18/2021

Texas Employers: 

Today, Governor Abbott announced that Texas would no longer participate in the federally funded unemployment programs effective June 26th.  Texas will stop participating in ARPA programs, including Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC), Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC), Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) and the Mixed Earners Unemployment Compensation Program (MEUC).  TWC and our Workforce Solutions partners continue to offer services to assist individuals in finding employment and their training needs. We will be providing additional information to claimants as we transition away from these programs.

 You can see Governor Abbott’s announcement at the following link: https://gov.texas.gov/news/post/governor-abbott-announces-end-to-federal-pandemic-related-unemployment-benefits
