From Maria Robinson, State Representative, 6th Middlesex District:

Claimants are now able to file for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA)

You can do so by applying on the Apply for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance page of the website.

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
