Start of new calendar quarter may require some to file a new unemployment claim

If you are currently receiving unemployment benefits via a federally funded program, you may be required to file a new unemployment insurance claim beginning on Sunday, October 4, as the rollout of a new calendar quarter may re-determine your current eligibility.

Individuals currently receiving benefits via Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA) -- available in Hurricane Laura-affected areas only -- or Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA), Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) or Extended Benefits (EB) may be required to file a new claim when they file for weekly benefits beginning this Sunday. If you have enough Louisiana employer-earned wages to qualify for "regular," state-funded benefits, your claim program will change, as may the amount of qualified weekly benefits.

If you do not have enough wages to qualify for state-funded benefits, you will remain on your current federally funded program with no change to your current weekly benefit amount.
