A Closer Look

UI Claims in US (as of January 23, 2021) – 18 million above where they were a year ago

Figure A shows continuing claims in all programs over time (the latest data are for January 23rd). Continuing claims are currently more than 18 million above where they were a year ago. The large increase in continuing claims in the most recent data was due to increases in PUA and PEUC. This is likely workers who had exhausted their original weeks of eligibility getting back on these programs. Remember, former President Trump allowed these programs to lapse before he signed the December bill that extended them.
