FEMA LOST WAGES PROGRAM

FEMA Lost Wages Assistance Program


The Office of Unemployment Insurance is currently processing payments under the FEMA Lost Wages Assistance program. Claimants for weeks ending August 1, August 8, and August 15 with a weekly benefit amount of $100 or more who are unemployed, partially unemployed, or unable or unavailable to work due to disruptions caused by COVID-19 may be eligible for a supplemental $400 payment.

If you believe you are qualified to receive this payment and have not previously provided a certification that you are unemployed, partially unemployed, or unable or unavailable to work due to disruptions caused by COVID-19, you will need to log into your claim and provide this certification before your eligibility can be determined.
