!WHEN ASKING A QUESTION POST YOUR LOCATION OR OTHERS WILL BE UNABLE TO ASSIST!

You are eligible for the $600 weekly FPUC payment if you are on any sort of unemployment, including PUA and partial unemployment. This is available for claims dated 3/28/20-7/31/20. The federal supplement does not affect eligibility for Medicaid and CHIP. It does affect SNAP and TANF.

If you filed for UI more than a week after your layoff date, you are eligible for backpay.

The obligatory waiting week has been waived, so your claim will process with a date a week earlier than what you apply for, to account for the waiting week waiver.

NY
There is a streamlined application process so that all applicants complete the same form, regardless of which program they'll eventually be eligible for.
PUA:
Unemployment for the self-employed. Acceptable proof of income includes prior year tax returns, 1099, P&L, bank statements and more. You will most likely be approved for standard UI even if you're an independent contractor, if you had W2 employment within the last 18 months.
If you are assigned the minimum rate of $182 when it should be higher based on your income, complete this form, fax it in, then send it again via the message center (Subject1: "Benefit Rate and Monetary Determination" Subject2: "Some of my wages are missing or incorrect") so that they definitely got it. Your rate should be adjusted in less than a week. You are also entitled to get your updated rate on all prior weeks.
You are also eligible for PUA if you landed a job but where unable to start due to the pandemic. You need an employment offer that was then rescinded to prove this.
PUA is available for a total of 46 weeks from 02/02/20-12/31/20.
Partial UI:
You can apply for partial UI if you're working 3 days or less, and earning $504/weekly or less. The DOL deducts 25% of your base rate for every day that you work. (You receive 100% of your rate if you don't work at all, 75% if you work 1 day, 50% if you work 2 days, and 25% if you work 3 days).
PEUC:
For those on regular unemployment- you will receive an additional 13 weeks of benefits after you've exhausted your initial 26 weeks. This benefit is available through 12/31/20.
Extended Benefits:
For those on regular unemployment- you will receive an additional 20 weeks of benefits after you've exhausted your initial 26 weeks and your PEUC weeks. This makes for a total of 59 weeks that you can possible receive unemployment benefits. This benefit is available as long as the state's unemployment rate is high.
Requesting Backpay:
The NY DOL is using Docusign to allow claimants to file backpay. You should receive an email from the DOL with instructions. The email subject is "Action Required - NYS DOL Certification for Back Week Payments". This might end up in your spam folder, so be sure to check that as well.
If you don't receive this email or you don't want to wait, call the NY DOL and speak to an agent to certify for backpay over the phone.
It takes a little less than a week from when you complete backdated certifications until your claims are processed and funds are released.
$0 Benefit Determination:
Email @cgr for instructions on a fix for this issue

NJ
Apply here.
PUA:
Unemployment for the self-employed. Acceptable proof of income includes prior year tax returns, 1099, P&L, bank statements and more. You will most likely be approved for standard UI even if you're an independent contractor, if you had W2 employment within the last 18 months.
At this point it looks like claimants are still being given $231- the minimum PUA rate- regardless of prior income.
You are also eligible for PUA if you landed a job but where unable to start due to the pandemic. You need an employment offer that was then rescinded to prove this.
PUA is available for a total of 46 weeks from 02/02/20-12/31/20.
Partial UI:
You can apply for partial UI if your hours have been reduced by 20% or more. You'll be allowed to earn an additional 20% above your rate determination. Your earnings will then be deducted from your rate, and you'll receive the balance as your UI payment.
PEUC:
For those on regular unemployment- you will receive an additional 13 weeks of benefits after you've exhausted your initial 26 weeks. This benefit is available through 12/31/20.
Extended Benefits:
For those on regular unemployment- you will receive an additional 20 weeks of benefits after you've exhausted your initial 26 weeks and your PEUC weeks. This makes for a total of 59 weeks that you can possible receive unemployment benefits. This benefit is available as long as the state's unemployment rate is high.
Requesting Backpay:
You can request backpay if you are lucky enough to get through to an agent.

Here is a guide for NJ residents from the LRRC.

Is it for the $0 week? or for an actual certification that has a claim attached to it with a dollar value?

Oysh. Did you check with your bank?
Also double check the DD info on your DOL account to make sure it's correct.

I dont think you can see the dd info previously entered, you can only enter new information. So I wouldn't know if it was incorrect.
Ill try talking to bank first.

NJ

Wife was working 20 percent of hours, getting UI and PUA steadily for weeks. Now, boss raised hours to 75 percent (of normal). Certified for NJ with new info, and it went through, though benefit amount has been reduced to $0. Can I still expect the PUA to come through on the regular schedule?
Is there a clever way to solicit likes without sounding like a classless wannabee?

She was getting UI and FPUC.
FPUC only comes through with a payment of at least $1 in UI.

She should be able to certify partially and get a payment if her hours are only up to 75% (80% is the max) and her wages are less than her benefit rate +20%.

DW worked in NJ at her job a few hours two weeks ago and last week worked nothing. On monday at recertification it said she has to refile a new claim. She did and still has not received any confirmation. Are we going to have problems with this?

When you say "refile a new claim" do you mean a new application or a new certification?

If a new application, did she file that now for the pandemic? Or was she certifying off an existing application that she filed for last year?

Sorry,
This may have been discussed.
If somebody worked six hours a day for an employer and now only has 2  hours a day, would they be able to apply for PUA?

she filed in april and had been getting benefits weekly, A couple of weeks ago her employer asked her to start doing a few hours a week but she still got partialunemployment. Last week it didn't work out for the clients so she worked nothing.

She tried to recertify and got an email thas said this

This e-mail confirms that your claim for weekly Unemployment Insurance benefits, Confirmation#......, has been received.

Your responses show that you have reported a week with earnings, followed by a week without earnings.

You must complete the following steps before any payments can be issued to you:

***   Please go to www.njuifile.net and follow instructions to "File or Reopen Your UI Claim"

***   Select "Yes" in response to question #1, "Have you worked since you last filed a claim for benefits" and provide the name of the employer for whom you mostly recently worked

***   Provide all additional information as requested

In order to avoid any unnecessary delay in your payment, please complete the above steps as soon as possible

She went to that link and filed and have heard nothing since

Thank you.

After Rechecking the wiki at the beginning of this thread (thank you CGR)It seems that one can get partial unemployment only if they work less days, not less hours.Is that correct?

It depends on where you're located.
In NY it depends on days (no matter how little time is worked during that day)
In NJ it's by hours.

If in NY is it possible to consolidate hours into less days?

Thank you.

I'm not that familiar with NJ- is she able to certify? If she is maybe that was just informational on their end to process her partial status?
