Message for the Department of Labor (DOL)
$600 Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (PUC)
- If you are currently collecting unemployment: Residents already collecting unemployment will begin to see their $600 supplemental unemployment benefit arrive April 14 (for the week of March 29th). It will be a separate payment from your regular unemployment benefit, and will continue through July 25.
- New filers: You also will be eligible for the additional $600/week; it will be retroactive to the week of March 29th.
- Freelancers, gig workers, independent contractors: While we wait for federal guidelines, we encourage you to apply for unemployment now. Your claim likely will be denied, but your ineligibility for regular unemployment is a prerequisite for receiving benefits due to COVID-19. Additional details will be posted online as they become available.
We are also awaiting guidance on the 13-week extension of unemployment benefits. Please check back for details.
