PUA Application Process
Individuals can still generally apply for PUA within 21 days of receiving a decision on a pending adjudication or appeal that denies regular UI benefits. However, PUA benefits are only payable retroactively through the week ending September 4th, 2021.
If you have applied for regular unemployment insurance benefits and have been denied within twelve months of today’s date, you can now file for PUA.
To learn the requirements and details regarding the PUA program please review our "Learn about PUA" website section which goes into details regarding the application process and potential benefits you may receive if found eligible for the program.
By proceeding you certify your understanding of the program and potential benefits
