You are receiving this email because you have been filing for unemployment insurance benefits. At the start of the pandemic, legislation was passed so that unemployment insurance benefits could be extended to those who were forced to separate from employment for a COVID-19 related reason.
COVID-19 related reasons included those who needed to leave their job:
- As a direct result of an order issued by the Governor or President
- For a COVID-19 related isolation or quarantine
- To care for a family member who is sick or isolated as the result of COVID-19
- To care for a child who has had their school or childcare center closed in response to a COVID-19 outbreak
If you are filing for one of the reasons outlined above, please review the information below to better understand what changes you will see when filing your weekly claim.
