Update from Job Service ND 4/23/2020:
Programming and testing is underway for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) aid. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, we expect to begin processing and paying claims sometime next week. If you have already applied, no action is required on your part at this time. You will receive a letter when the process begins. Once you receive a monetary determination, you will have to certify each week through UIICE to continue receiving benefits. FPUC ($600/week) benefits will be included in PUA payouts.
