PUA Application Process

IDES is working with federal partners to implement the new federal Covid-19 relief package recently signed into law. Updates will be made to the IDES webpage and social media sites as soon as they become available. Please check back for information.

You can file a claim for PUA only after you applied for regular unemployment insurance benefits and have been denied. If you have not, click "File for Regular Unemployment Benefits."

If you have applied for regular unemployment insurance benefits and have been denied within twelve months of today’s date, you can now file for PUA.

To learn the requirements and details regarding the PUA program please review our "Learn about PUA" website section which goes into details regarding the application process and potential benefits you may receive if found eligible for the program.
