How to Apply for Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation
Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) provides an additional 13 weeks of benefits to those who have exhausted their regular benefits. You must have a zero dollar ($0) balance before you apply. How to Apply for PEUC
On August 8, 2020, President Trump signed a Presidential Memorandum authorizing the “Assistance Program for Lost Wages” which provides for an additional benefit of a $300 payment per week, to eligible claimants from the week of unemployment ending August 1, 2020. The department received approval from FEMA to participate in the program on August 29, 2020. The $300 additional benefit amount will be retroactively added to eligible weeks of unemployment once program modifications are completed. The department will announce and post details on how to apply once the program goes live.
