Unpaid Waiting Week Reinstatement
If you file a new Unemployment Compensation (UC) claim as of September 5, 2021, or later you will have to serve an unpaid waiting week. If you reopen an existing UC claim effective September 5, 2021, or later, on which you have received no payments yet, you will have to serve an unpaid waiting week. This is especially noteworthy for PEUC claimants moving to UC; if your first eligible claim week is September 11, 2021, or after it will be considered a waiting week and will not be paid.
To get credit for your unpaid waiting week you must file for it and be otherwise eligible. To learn more about the waiting week and eligibility, refer to Eligibility FAQs.
