The Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) program is now active. Coding was completed overnight. Individuals with existing PUA claims may now certify their weekly eligibility for payment.
Please note that due to federal changes, some of the questions that must be answered weekly are slightly different. Please read the questions and answers closely. The federal eligibility requirements have changed in some cases and this could result in individuals not being eligible for payments under this new extension of PUA benefits.
Individuals with existing PUA claims will receive a new Amended Notice of Monetary Entitlement in the mail with further eligibility information.
