Federal pandemic unemployment benefits to end next month

In accordance to guidelines within the federal government’s CARES Act, Tennessee will discontinue paying Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) the week ending July 25, 2020.

FPUC provided $600 per week in federal assistance, in addition to benefits from other unemployment insurance programs, including Tennessee Unemployment Compensation and Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA).

The CARES Act requires states to provide FPUC through July 31. Tennessee, like many other states, ends its benefit week on Saturdays. July 25 is the last Saturday of the month. Federal law does not allow the state to pay this particular benefit through Saturday, August 1.

Eligible claimants still unemployed as of July 26 will receive benefits that do not include the additional $600 FPUC payment starting Monday, August 2.

If an eligible claim is in pending status, and the claimant has completed all weekly certifications prior to July 25, they will retroactively receive their benefits, including the FPUC payments, on the date the claim processes.

The additional unemployment programs outlined in the CARES Act; PUA and Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation, will continue through December 26, 2020, the last Saturday of that month.

The Manchester Recreation Complex continues its phased re-opening of facilities amid COVID-19 pandemic. After opening the pool after Memorial Day but not accepting day passes, the center will now accept day passes for Coffee County residents on Saturdays and Sundays only. Previously, only members could visit the facility.
Day pass prices are as follows – $6 for adults, $5 for students, $4 for children 5 and under and seniors 60 and over, and $2 for seniors 80 and over. The recreation center pool will also be open on Independence Day from noon until 5 p.m.
