Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) recipients will get the same benefit amount that is normally allowed for unemployment compensation under the state law where they were employed. U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) guidance also says the amount would never be less than the minimum benefits received by the Disaster Unemployment Assistance program.
Another CARES Act program called Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) will give an additional $300 per week to PUA eligible workers who have become unemployed between the start date of the state's PUA agreement, and September 6, 2021.
What is the coverage period for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance?
PUA will be paid to eligible workers who become unemployed between January 27, 2020 and September 6, 2021
Individuals will receive benefits for up to 39 weeks from when coverage begins.
