The total dependency allowance you receive cannot be more than 50 percent of your weekly benefit rate.
If you want to claim a dependency allowance when you file your claim, you will be asked to provide the name, date of birth and social security number of your dependent child(ren).
Your dependent child or children must be either:
- under 18 years of age;
- under 24 years old and attending an educational institution full-time;
- any age, but unable to earn wages due to mental or physical incapacity.
While you are receiving benefits, you must inform DUA if there is any change in the number of your dependent children or in your status of providing support.
