The Unemployment Compensation Amnesty Program runs from July 1, 2017 until September 30, 2017. 

THE UNEMPLOYMENT COMPENSATION AMNESTY PROGRAM HAS ENDED

Claimants and employers are no longer eligible to make UC overpayments with amnesty provisions. However, you are still obligated to pay any overpayments you received from the state’s UC fund. To pay your outstanding obligation, please visit Unemployment Benefits and Employer UC Services/UC Tax.

Overview

The UC Amnesty Program was established to give eligible claimants and employers an opportunity to make payments on delinquent accounts at a reduced rate, satisfying their liability and preventing any additional penalties or action.

The Amnesty Program runs from July 1, 2017 until September 30, 2017. After this date, amnesty will no longer be granted. Please note, this is not an annual occurrence but rather, state legislation enacted in an effort to help restore the fund and maintain the Commonwealth's ability to administer unemployment benefits to those in need.

Eligible parties will receive mailed notices with instructions on how to participate in the program. If you did not receive a notice, but believe you have an overpayment or payment due, and would like to take advantage of the UC Amnesty Program, complete the applicable form below.
