As you may have seen reported, New Your State has applied for the Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) program to provide enhanced unemployment benefits to New Yorkers. While we await FEMA approval and work to operationalize the program, please continue to certify weekly to ensure you receive the benefits that you are entitled to.
We will provide updates on the program and next steps on our website, on social media platforms, and directly to claimants through emails and text messages. To allow your fellow New Yorkers to reach a representative for regular UI or PUA matters, please do not call the DOL to inquire about the LWA program at this time.
The Federal CARES Act was signed into law March 27, 2020. The Act provides enhanced Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits and Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) for New Yorkers. Click here for what you need to know.
