Will I still qualify for WPB if I am waiting on my appeal?

If an individual is waiting on an appeal hearing, they may receive the WPB payment if their appeal is resolved and determined in the claimant's favor without any other pending issues before December 28th and they are able to certify and receive a benefit payment for qualifying weeks of November 22 through 28 or November 29 through December 5.

If there is a hold on my claim, will I still be able to get the one-time $1,200 Worker Pandemic Benefit?

The department is expanding our eligibility criteria to include as many claimants as possible in the one-time Worker Pandemic Benefit. Eligible individuals are those who certify and are eligible to receive benefits for qualifying weeks of November 22 through November 28 or November 29 through December 5. Please note, claimants who were eligible for benefits but exhausted their claims between September 12 and November 25, 2020 are eligible for WPB. There is no need for claimants to apply separately for this benefit.

How will I receive the WPB payment?

Eligible individuals will receive a one-time $1,200 supplemental benefit as a separate payment from their weekly unemployment benefit through their preferred payment method for receiving Unemployment Insurance benefits. Your payment method can be revised at any time by logging into your Unemployment Insurance account and going to “View and Maintain Account Information” and then selecting “Payment Method Options and Tax Information.”
