Welcome to the new IDES website! How do I know this is official?

Federal benefit programs expired on September 4th. Learn about what this means for you.

PUA Application Process

PUA applications are being accepted until October 6th, 2021. However, PUA benefits are only payable retroactively through the week ending September 4th, 2021.

You can file a claim for PUA only after you applied for regular unemployment insurance benefits and have been denied. If you have not, click "File for Regular Unemployment Benefits."

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

I have reviewed and understand the "Learn about PUA" documentation
