Groups Who Should NOT File for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (Video)

Authored By: Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry

Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) is only for those unemployed due to COVID-19 reasons – it does NOT cover individuals without an attachment to the labor market or those who are unemployed for non-COVID-19 reasons. Making false statements/omitting facts to obtain PUA will result in disqualification + repayment of all overpaid PUA & FPUC benefits and could result in criminal prosecution.
