    Hi I was finally able to log in UI BUT been waiting over 1 month only to see Big FAT O BALANCE should I apply again I'm confused thanks???

  4. I was self employed and took a loss in 2019 because of material cost but made profit in the first quarter of 2020, should I use the online or the paper forms for PUA Cares Act because the paper forms that’s available on the website has option for alternate base period, meaning first quarter in 2020, so I’d say my business stopped on March 30, 2020. Online version, only asks biz owners for net profit 2019, my business did not producing any money in 2019. However it did in first quarter of 2020 but when the stay at home order hit in March 2020 my cleaning business stopped abruptly because people in my county were sheltering at home. If I put zero down online for net in 2019, would I be rejected?
    I haven’t been able to fine any topic on that dollar amount necessity for the online version question “net profit 2019” for self employed, thanks a bunch.

    So how does someone with a $0 Award file a new claim? Do you log into UI Online with the same email and there should be an option to file a new claim? Or do you need to create a new UI Online account with a different email?

  12. Speak up girl!…I have my volume at high and I still can't hear you that well…Otherwise thanks for the vid & tips…

  13. Thanks for this video. Yes, I applied before April 28 and got the 0 letter. So I reapplied stating that I was out of work as a direct result of Covid-19 etc. They sent me letter asking me to verify ID so I faxed and mailed everything they asked for etc. Then I did not hear back for the longest time. I tried to call multiple times but never was able to get through to anyone. Fast forward…..finally they responded with another 0 letter indicating that it was because I worked for a non-profit. So I went back and researched to see if perhaps I did something wrong, but I did everything just as prescribed. So now I re-applied a third time (probably a month or so ago) but still have not heard anything back. Meanwhile, I have had zero income for April, May, June and now July as a direct result of Covid. I have former co-workers who received theirs, and others who did not. I have a friend with my exact same job, with the same agency (only in a different city) who received his. Not sure what to do now and have pretty much accepted the fact that I will not be receiving anything. Very frustrating. Any suggestions? Appreciate any feedback.

  24. I am currently receiving Unemployment benefits. I am receiving the MINIMAL (plus $600). I will only get benefits until mid July. My friend applied for PUA and received $5000 back pay and she will have benefits until December. My question? Can I apply for PUA if I am already receiving Unemployment (I worked for a salary). Thank you in advance.

  25. Juan vergara

    Hi Drive girl. Thank you for the info. I just got approved for the minimum amount for PUA. There is one question when you certify for benefits for the week. Did you work or earn any money should I put yes or no. I have a rental thru the lyft rental program and 90% of the income goes toward the car.

  26. i was able to certify online on 15th but i didn't get any email or notification about approval so am i approved if i was able to certify i am confused can someone answer
