Normally, you can receive unemployment compensation for 26 weeks. Congress has extended this period to 39 weeks as part of the stimulus package, and many states will allow for even longer periods, which vary from one state to another.

It varies by state so check with the organization you're receiving your unemployment from. Often times it says on your check stub. Due to the economy some states give extensions.
