Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) under the CARES Act was available for 39 weeks and is not determined by balance. If you exhausted all 39 weeks but still have a balance, your claim will be exhausted. If you did not exhaust your weeks prior to December 27, 2020, you can reopen your claim to continue certifying for remaining weeks. If you have exhausted your PUA benefits and your claim is inactive, you will receive a “Reopen Claim” link on your claimant homepage. You may qualify to receive up to 11 additional weeks of benefits under the Continued Assistance Act.
