ENHANCED UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS ARE ENDING SOON

If Minnesotans 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 their regular unemployment benefits, the last week those additional benefits will be available is the week ending September 4, 2021.

To verify unemployment benefits you, they can look in their unemployment insurance account. Recipients 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 DEED is hosting three webinars this month to explain how CareerForce can help them find a job. 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.

DEED invites those receiving benefits to join the two remaining webinars to learn how CareerForce can help them in their job search.
