If you are receiving unemployment benefits through Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) or Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA), and are receiving an additional $300 a week on top of your regular unemployment benefits, the last week those additional benefits will be available is the week ending September 4, 2021.
To verify which unemployment benefits you are receiving, you can look in your unemployment insurance account. You will also be receiving official notification in the mail from the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development’s (DEED’s) Unemployment Insurance office.
As we know, this will be a time of transition for many Minnesotans, and we are hosting three webinars this month to explain how CareerForce can help you find a job or new career path – at no cost to you.
CareerForce is Minnesota’s workforce system and DEED plays a key role in this essential work of connecting residents with family-sustaining jobs and employers with the workers they need for their businesses to grow and thrive. Since March, DEED staff have called more than 60,000 Minnesotans receiving unemployment benefits, and in every conversation, we’ve shared the CareerForce resources to help them with their job search.
