Pandemic Unemployment Insurance by the New York State Department of Labor

COVID-19 UPDATE: The Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) is a federal program that was included in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The program provides support for Americans who are unable to work due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but do not qualify for traditional Unemployment Insurance (UI).
Through the CARES Act, if you qualify for PUA, you will also be eligible to receive:
-Up to 39 weeks of PUA benefits.
-An additional $600/week until 7/31/2020.
The best way to apply is online. DOL (Department of Labor) has a streamlined application that allows you to apply for either traditional UI or PUA, depending on their eligibility. You do not have to complete a separate application for PUA.
There will not be a 7-day waiting period for people who are out of work due to coronavirus (COVID-19) closure or quarantines.
