Workers in Pennsylvania who are impacted by COVID-19 may be eligible for Unemployment and Workers’ Compensation benefits. Unemployment compensation claims should be submitted online for faster processing.
You may be eligible if:
· Your employer temporarily closes or goes out of business because of COVID-19;
· Your employer reduces your hours because of COVID-19;
· You have been told not to work because your employer feels you might get or spread COVID-19; or
· You have been told to quarantine or self-isolate, or live/work in a county under government-recommended mitigation efforts.
Applying online is the fastest and easiest way to get started. You can find call center hours and other vital info at www.uc.pa.gov; learn all UC benefit requirements by visiting the self-service guide; or use UC LiveChat.
