Unemployment Update from PA Department of Labor & Industry-March 27, 2020

Update from the PA Department of Labor & Industry on the Status of Claims processing:

🔹 If you opened your claim between March 15 and March 21: We are working quickly to mail a PIN to you so you can file for benefits starting Sunday, March 29, 2020. If you do not receive your PIN by Saturday, March 28, please remember that you may file any day through Friday, April 3, 2020. If you do not receive your PIN in time for you to file by April 3, we will make accommodations for filing and will update these instructions, accordingly.

🔹 If you opened your claim between March 22 and March 28: Your first day to file will be Sunday, April 5, 2020. We will update these instructions, accordingly, as we monitor our progress with mail processing.

🔹 For Everyone: Mailing PINs is a top priority, so you may have not received your financial determination yet. When you do receive your financial determination and if you detect an error, you may file an appeal at that time.

We are processing all documents as quickly as possible and appreciate your patience during this evolving situation.
