The Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) application is now available (as of Monday, 4/20/20). This is targeted to provide assistance for gig workers, self-employed, religious workers, people seeking part-time work, and others not eligible for regular unemployment assistance. Go to www.mass.gov/pua to learn how to apply, to review the eligibility and documentation checklists and to access the application.

A huge thanks to all our Mass Hires for providing such critical assistance during this time.
