    It's not clear because the context you've provided isn't enough context to make it clear. It could mean "offer," but it could also mean "continue," depending on the context of that context.

    make longer in some way, as extend pretty much always means.  In this instance, the lengthening would be in terms of time.

    In this context, extend means to add to the length or duration of unemployment insurance.

    In that context, 'extend' means 'carry on with' to a later date.
