Potential PUA Eligibility with Connecticut if Other State Canceled the PUA Program


The Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) program expired on September 6, 2021.

Individuals who filed for PUA in a state that ended the PUA program prior to its September 6 expiration date may be eligible to collect the remainder of their PUA entitlement through week-ending September 4, 2021 from Connecticut if they have worked in Connecticut at the initial time of becoming unemployed, partially unemployed, or unable or unavailable to work because of approved COVID-19 related reason(s) OR since they filed the original PUA claim in another state.

If you believe you may qualify, please call the CTDOL Consumer Contact Center (phone numbers below) to inquire. Note that in order to qualify, you will be asked to:
  • verify or validate your identity;
  • submit documentation substantiating employment or self-employment (or the planned commencement of employment or self-employment) performed in Connecticut. No PUA benefits can be paid until this documentation is received and approved; and
  • meet all other eligibility requirements.
If you are found eligible for PUA against Connecticut, your period of eligibility will commence after the week in which you last received PUA or the week in which you became unemployed, partially unemployed, or unable or unavailable to work because of approved COVID-19 related reason(s). You may not receive PUA from more than one state for any given week.

To talk to a PUA dial one of the following telephone numbers, and choose option 2:
1 203-941-6868
1 860-967-0493
1 800-956-3294
TTY - 711 or 800-842-9710
