Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program (PUA) the new unemployment benefits that are available for individuals who are self employed / independent contractors through the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program (PUA). This program is part of the CARES acts passed by congress. The PUA will provide unemployed self employed individuals with a minimum of $167 per week with an additional $600 for a limited period of time. The Unemployment Insurance benefit is just a small part of the overall stimulus package along with the PPP , EIDL and that is meant to bring the economy back to life . Normally Unemployment does not provide benefits for people who are self employed or individuals who file taxes with a form 1099. Under the new PUA program independent contractors will be eligible for UI benefits for a limited period of time. In order to file for the PUA program you must do the application through the EDD website UI Online. With this website self employed people can file for the normal Unemployment Insurance benefits as well as the new PUA benefits. Additionally if you are uncertain about which program you should apply for it is recommended by EDD to apply through the UI Online portal and EDD will sort out which program is best for your situation.
