Pandemic Unemployment Assistance Tip:
If you previously entered a return to work
date of May 20 on your PUA claim
application, but will still be unemployed or
under-employed after that date, you can
continue filing your weekly
certification(s). This keeps your claim
active and provides weekly benefits, when
applicable, until you are back at work
Helpful Filing Tip - If you
have returned to work, but at a reduced
schedule, please continue to file weekly as
you may be eligible for partial benefits.
Reporting your part-time hours and earnings
keeps your claim active and provides partial
unemployment benefits, where applicable.
