Should I Reapply For PUA (Pandemic Unemployment Assistance)? Details Of The PUA Extension?

***If you have worked a W-2 job while collecting, you might need to reapply for regular unemployment!

In this video, I talk about:

Details about the PUA extensions?
If you have been on PUA, should you reapply?

A new bill was signed and the PUA program has now been extended until Sept 4, 2021.

Also claimants will also receive an extra $300 boost on top of receiving the state benefit amount.
I have been getting this question a lot if you have been collecting PUA, do you need to reapply?

Unless you have been told specifically by your state, do not apply unless your state specifically tells you to. The states are currently waiting on guidance from the federal government so that they can program the unemployment software based on the new laws…the sooner the states can get this information, the sooner they can program their systems.

This channel will discuss everything regarding unemployment benefits. I will do my best to give you the latest unemployment updates and changes and I will do my best to keep the viewers informed of all of the changes regarding: regular Unemployment Compensation, Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC), Extended Benefits (EB), and Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) as well as Lost Wages Assistance (LWA).

I have done a ton of research on Unemployment benefits (because my family is on unemployment!) and see all of the questions that people have on Facebook and wanted a place for people to go to get their questions answered.
If you have any questions, please post them below this video and I will do my best to answer them!

  1. Do you know if Michigan wants proof of income for someone who received it in 2020 and 21, but doesnt seek extra money per week with proof of income?

  2. Derrick Moon

    Do we have to reapply for pua after we had to reapply for the BYE unemployment .

  3. brianna velez

    I’m frustrated, I claimed last week Sunday and they said pua doesn’t need to reapply, but then my payment history disappeared and now they’re saying I have no claim on file. But can’t get through to anyone on DOLs phone lines, absolutely frustrating

  4. Witchy Crafter

    I sent my proof of income 3/18 and it still says pending. I called they said yes they received it. I don’t see any movement on my page. I’m in Ohio and there is no answers to what’s taking so long.

  5. margaret bradley

    i am on pua but my state ask me to refile when my benefit year ended

  6. marie Krekora

    PUA is a nightmare I’ve been without benefits for a year

  7. The government was approved the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance when you applied last year, you spent all the money. Now the government asked you for a proof of employment.

    The people that received and spent all those money they had been jobless for years and no way of paying back all the money. The government must forgive them and not prosecute them.

  8. Robert Marino

    Isn't any body reading u dont have to reapply how many times u have to tell these people

  20. Hi, I was just able to continue to file for PUA in PA and it looks like the state reloaded my account for somewhere around $5,000 but that wouldn't last until Sep. What will happen when the five thousand runs out. The amount should be around 10,000 to last until September. I'm confused.Whats going on? Any clarity that you could provide would be greatly appreciated thank you.
