refund cp21B notice

If you were expecting a refund of $1,887 for the unemployment exclusion, the additional $19.64 is likely due to interest that the IRS is paying you.  At the bottom of the check received from the United States Treasury, there should be a notation with the amount of interest, then INT, then the numbers of days of calculated interest.  For 2021 you will receive a 1099-INT for the interest you received and you will need to claim that as interest income on your 2021 tax return.
