Unemployment Update

Lost Wages Assistance remains in effect each week the program remains federally funded.

The Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) program is active and a large number of payments continue to be processed. Over $625,600,000 in LWA benefits was paid to more than 400,000 eligible claimants last week. The high volume has caused slight delays. Help to minimize delays by waiting until later in the week to log in and use eServices. Refer to the Employment Security Department website for details.
