The Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry wants to make sure recipients of benefits from federal pandemic unemployment assistance aren't taken by surprise when they end next month.

The final week of eligibility for payments is Sept. 4 for the following programs:

  • Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA)
  • Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC)
  • Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC)

 

Pennsylvania's regular unemployment program is not affected.

"With the end of the federal pandemic programs rapidly approaching, L&I is reaching out to individuals who are receiving benefits to these programs to ensure they are aware of other forms of support," L&I Secretary Jennifer Berrier said in a statement.

"We are also continuing to work with our workforce partners, including PA CareerLink, to provide as many opportunities as possible for Pennsylvanians to connect with employers and find a good job before the federal unemployment benefit programs end.
