Pandemic Unemployment Assistance Available for Kansans

Brock Kappelmann - May 12, 2020 2:53 pm

Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) is a broad program that expands access to unemployment, in addition to what state and federal law already pay.  This includes people who traditionally are not able to get unemployment such as: self employed, independent contractors, “gig” workers such as Uber and Lyft drivers, employees of religious organizations whose employment has been impacted by COVID-19, and those who lack sufficient work history to file a claim or have been disqualified for state benefits but who are impacted directly by COVID-19.

PUA applications are now being accepted.  Apply online at www.PUA.GetKansasBenefits.gov.
