what is emergency unemployment compensation?

I received a letter from Texas Workforce Commission stating they cannot pay me EUC benefits. That I need to receive all benefits before I can receive EUC. I am applying for extension of benefits and received this letter. What does this mean?

    Hi Mr Martinez:

    EUC is a federal program that funds additional unemployment benefits for a period of time AFTER all regular state benefits have been exhausted. If you have unclaimed benefit dollars from your state they must be collected before you're able to collect any EUC benefits. You should be able to get a financial statement of your Unemployment Account from your state UC board showing what you have collected and any remaining benefits which you are entitled too collect before EUC.

    Hope that helps.
