ALBANY, N.Y. – A system error has caused a delay in the $600 Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) payments for those receiving unemployment insurance benefits in New York.

The New York State Department of Labor tweeted Monday, saying an update to the system caused the delay, but the payments will be made by the end of the week.

The regular unemployment insurance and Pandemic Unemployment Assistance payments were not affected by the system issue.

The additional $600 payments through the FPUC program are scheduled to end on July 26.

Last week, the Department of Labor said people still out of work after the initial 26 weeks of unemployment insurance are over, may be eligible for up to 33 additional weeks of benefits under new pandemic extension programs.
