Unable to File in PUA for Week Ending 12/26/20?

December 29, 2020

If you are an active claimant in the PUA program and are unable to file for the benefit week ending (BWE) 12/26/20, it is likely because you have received the maximum number of weeks of the program under the original CARES Act. The CARES Act extension begins this week and eligible PUA claimants who have exhausted their original benefits will be able to file for the BWE 01/02/21 once the program has been updated with the federal changes. The new CARES Act extension does not cover the BWE 12/26/20 for PUA claimants who have already exhausted their benefits.
