What you need for Request weekly Pandemic Unemployment Assistance benefits

Once you have applied for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) benefits, you must certify your unemployment status and request benefits for each week during which you are in partial or total unemployment due to the COVID-19 public health emergency.

You're required to certify and request benefits weekly even in cases where your eligibility is still being decided upon or you have an ongoing appeal pending. If you're approved for benefits, you'll only receive payment for the weeks you've requested.

Sunday is the first day of the week that you can request benefits for the prior week. You may request benefits for the prior week at any time beginning Sunday through Saturday of the current week.

Every time you request weekly benefits, you’ll be asked questions about your unemployment status during the previous week.
