Possibility of a Benefit Extension

State extended benefits are paid during times of high unemployment in Texas. TWC pays federal extended benefits when the U.S. Congress enacts legislation to create a federal benefit extension program. We notify all potential recipients by mail if an extension is available. Be sure to keep your address updated with us.
