Claimants will now be able to file for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA).
They can do so by applying online here: https://www.mass.gov/how-to/apply-for-pandemic-unemployment-assistance

PUA is a program open to the following individuals:

  • Self-employed individuals, including gig workers, freelancers, and independent contractors.
  • Those seeking part-time employment.
  • Claimants that have an insufficient work history to qualify for benefits.
  • And claimants that have been laid off from churches and religious institutions and are not eligible for benefits under state law.

These details were available from MA, courtesy of Representative Angelo Puppolo. We assume the same conditions exist in other states.
