The unemployment credit is for any unemployment received in 2020, not just for a COVID related Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation Program.   If you received any 2020 unemployment and filed before Feb. 23, 2021, then you will receive the credit.

In that case, something is either wrong with your return or with the way the IRS computed it.  You should receive a letter soon advising you or the change.  You can also telephone the IRS and ask for an explanation.
