Federal Additional Compensation (FAC) data for State Programs
The FAC program provides a $25 weekly supplement to the unemployment compensation of eligible claimants. This $25 supplement, as well as any additional administrative expenses incurred by the state in paying the supplement, is 100 percent funded from Federal general revenues.
FAC is payable to individuals who are otherwise entitled under state law to receive regular unemployment compensation (UC) for weeks of unemployment. FAC is also payable to individuals receiving the following Federal and other state unemployment benefit programs: Unemployment Compensation for Federal Employees (UCFE), Unemployment Compensation for Ex-Service Members (UCX), Emergency Unemployment Compensation, 2008 (EUC08), Extended Benefits (EB), Trade Readjustment Allowances (TRA), Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA), Short- Time Compensation (STC), and payments under the Self-Employment Assistance (SEA) programs.
The FAC program is administered through voluntary agreements between states and the U.S. Department of Labor (the Department). FAC is payable in a state the week following the week in which the agreement is signed. In most states, where the week of unemployment ends on Saturday, the first week for which FAC may be paid is the week ending February 28, 2009.
Although the FAC program ended in December 2010, states continue to report activity such as appeals reversals and overpayment recoveries for the program.November, 2013
