​Unemployment Compensation Claim Statistics & COVID-19

The Department of Labor & Industry (L&I) was providing real-time reporting of initial claim applications during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in Pennsylvania; however, to align with the confirmed number of initial claims reported to the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) by the Center for Workforce Information & Analysis, including workshare and interstate claims, L&I will now be reporting claim numbers every Thursday by 12 p.m.
