The new UC system won't require you to perform "work search" until the week of July 11-17, 2021. Beginning on July 18, 2021,
individuals receiving benefits through any unemployment program in Pennsylvania – including UC, PEUC, and PUA – will need to certify each week
that during the claim week they fulfilled the work search requirement
by applying for two jobs and participating in one work search activity.
Please note that "work search" is different from "work registration." L&I has not yet made an announcement regarding the restart date of work registration; however, we encourage unemployment benefit recipients to register with PA CareerLink® as soon as possible to take advantage of free assistance with finding a new job.
, a very small percentage of claimants are seeing questions related to their work search activities.
We are working on a fix now so you do not see these questions until you are required to perform a "work search" the week of July 11-17, 2021.
