The New York State Department of Labor says that federal unemployment payments were processed overnight and should be coming to unemployed New Yorkers in the next several days.
The Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation payments of $600 were missing in last week’s payments due to a technical issue.
That issue had to do with a system update that took place on New York’s end. It’s since been resolved, according to officials who tweeted an update Tuesday morning.
Next week’s payment is scheduled to be the last one with the added $600 bonus. A second stimulus package is being discussed – but details are unclear.
Last night, an update to our system inadvertently caused a delay in the release of $600 FPUC payments. UI & PUA payments were not impacted.
We have corrected the issue & FPUC payments will be processed tonight. You‘ll receive your money this week.
Thank you for your patience.
