The Budget Control Act of 2011 (Public Law 112-25) requires across-the-board budget cuts to many federal programs, including the Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) program. These reductions are generally known as “sequestration” budget cuts. This means that all payments of EUC for weeks that begin on or after April 28, 2013 must be reduced by 12.8% for weeks of unemployment through September 2013. The first payment of EUC that will be reduced is payment for the week ending May 4, 2013.
