Department of Labor launches new, streamlined unemployment insurance application

The New York State Department of Labor has launched a new, streamlined unemployment insurance application.

It waives the ordinary unemployment insurance program, and allows people to file for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance.

This covers those who are self-employed, independent contractors, gig workers, farmers, people with COVID or who have COVID symptoms, people living with a person who’s been diagnosed with COVID, people caring for a family member with COVID, and a number of others.

The application can be filled out online, or by calling 888-209-8124.
