Retroactive $600 Unemployment (FPUC) Payment Delays

Most states have now updated their unemployment systems to account for the extra $600 Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) payment to those eligible for regular unemployment insurance (UI). While the roll-out and payment of these benefits has been plagued by challenges with some states struggling a lot more than others, millions of Americans have started receiving their extra/stimulus unemployment benefits. As a reminder, the additional $600 weekly should occur automatically (unless specified by state unemployment site) for anybody eligible for any amount of state unemployment benefits — even as little as $1. The payments, including retroactive or backdated payments for eligible weeks, will continue through July 31.

The good news is that even though payments have started later the planned, they will be retroactive to when states signed up to receive the federal boost for their unemployment programs. This is generally for the week ending 4/3 in most states. So if you were eligible to receive unemployment compensation from that week then you would be eligible to receive payments from that date. The table below shows when states started making the $600 FPUC payment and when the payments were retroactive to.

Unfortunately many readers have noted issues with these retroactive payments whereby they have not received them at all, even though they had gotten their first $600 payment per state schedules. So while many were expecting a large first payment worth thousands, they ended up getting just their base $600 payment. And when they contact their local state unemployment agencies they cannot get a clear answer and are told just to wait while they clear back logs of new claimants.

WisconsinFrom 4/26 (Retroactive to 4/4)
WyomingFrom 4/27 (retroactive to w/ending 4/4)

States like Florida, North Dakota and Ohio have confirmed they are still well behind making these retroactive payments due to IT system issues around certifying eligibility for past weeks and taking initial claims for new worker groups (e.g freelancers) eligible for unemployment and the extra $600 under PUA provisions.

Note however that while the program end date is July 31st, retroactive payments for the $600 FPUC may be made after that date subject to program funding. There is also a chance the entire program could be extended if unemployment rates don’t improve.

  1. I’m so stressed out. I have not received my way2go card, I haven’t received any $600 payment at all and I applied March 22nd. I was approved May 30th but still nothing has happened. I hate this so much because I literally have no way to pay my bills because I was forced out of work because of Coronavirus. I really need these unemployment and I don’t understand why I’m not getting anything at all. Based on what my friends are telling me, they haven’t gotten anything either. Florida unemployment sucks in general and I can’t deal with this anymore.

  2. From Florida…I just realized that I did not receive pua $125.00 or fpuc $600.00 for weeks ending 04/18 and 04/25. Governor DeSantis waived claiming weeks altogether per executive order on 04/16 through 05/10, so that their overloaded system could be fixed. Therefore, I didn’t claim those 2 weeks and now there is no record of them on my Connect site. I can’t get any answers either. Insane!!

  3. My bf finally became eligible for the 13 week extension. Got the email, certified, encountered problems, as usual (go NJ). Anyway, my reason for commenting is he was able to claim 8 backdated weeks (3 on 5/29 & 5 on 5/30). On Monday 6/1, he received all 8 weeks of the weekly benefit rate, and only 3 weeks of the $600 FPUC payments. Why is this happening? Will he receive the other 5 weeks that he already claimed for?

  4. FL – Applied for unemployment on 05/03 (Wed). Was approved for $125/week. Received $600 payment on 05/13. Then received another $600 payment plus $125 for one week of unemployment on 05/19 (Tues). I have not received anything else. I went into the system today to claim for the next 2 weeks of unemployment payments, but I am extremely concerned about the $600. This is the 2nd week in a row that I have not received the $600. I called and was told that the state does not disperse the $600 payments because they are federal funds, and are dispersed directly by the federal government. I mentioned to the rep that the direct deposit for both the $125 state unemployment and the $600 federal funds were deposited by the same entity (Florida DEO). He did not have an answer, he said there was nowhere to call to inquire, and told me he was not sure whether those $600 payments would be paid retroactively. Today, I read an article online about how FL unemployment is having to re-train their employees because they are providing inaccurate information to callers regarding the $600. They are telling callers that they need to contact the federal government regarding the payments because they are not responsible (basically what I was told). So, according to the article, the state is DEFINITELY receiving the federal money and is responsible for distributing it. There is definitely something sinister going on when the reps are telling people something completely different. Also, I was never paid for the “waiting week” and part of the CARES act includes not having to be submitted to an unpaid “waiting week.” The rep said I should be receiving a check in the mail (even though I am set up for direct deposit), but could not provide any information as to when that would happen. Governor Desantis is responsible for this, as he is responsible for Florida’s unemployment. Keep this in mind, people!!!

    1. I am going through the same thing and can’t pay my rent for June was also told all the same things now I’m praying I don’t get put out place SMH makes no sense really

    2. The exact same thing happened to me. Your story could be mine. I got $125 and $600/week. Then I worked one day. They reduced my state unemployment and I never received another $600 payment. I called and they gave me the same run-around they gave you. The rep told me to call federal, gave me a fake number just to get off the phone. Very unprofessional and ignorant.

  5. I live in VA and I received one time back payment after a month and a half an now I only have been getting the UI payment not the $600 it’s been 2 weeks now and I can’t get through on the phone I don’t know what to do or who to contact please somebody help I’m so confused!!

    1. Hi. I have a friend in the same situation and I wanted to know did yu ever find out who to contact.

  6. I live in California, I have received my regular unemployment but never got my $600. Any idea why that would be?
    What do I need to do?

  7. If you are getting the $600 (which I havent seen the first payment of) does it get direct deposit into account and when it does do they show the deposit on the Connect website under your claim information. I only see the 2 payments of PUA that I have received so far but it doesnt show anything else. Waiting since March 29th. Just got 2 PUA small small payments last week.

    1. Well at least u got something i was certified back on 3/8/20 i have yet yo re eive my monthly pua payment or the additional 600 weekly and ive waited 12 weeks!!! Georgia slow as hell.

    2. It’s a joke. Still nothing other than the 2 small payments and still no $600 payments. Due to claim 2 weeks on Monday. Maybe after I do that something will change and I will get the $600 payments and back pay since march 29th. That’s the date it shows my app started. Everyone seems to be having a different experience. I dont get it at all. Some people are getting nothing still.

  8. Hope this helps…in Fl. Last week got my 1st fl 275 payment and 1 $600 fed payment… woke up this morning 5/2 to a 2k plus deposit for retro and a separate 3k payment for a total of over 5k. Also deo website says another deposit tomorrow for over 800… guessing I got my retro pay for Fl unemployment. All at once. Also says my unemployment is exhausted. So guessing no more weekly payments…keep positive. Its coming!!!

    1. This is upsetting due to the fact some of us can’t work and can’t pay bill STILL TIDAY NO STIMULUS!!! AND NOW CANT GET THE BENEFITS NEEDED TO STAY AFLOAT THATS CRAZY

  9. Nj… missed unemployment certification date.. Did it on Sat.. Now missing fed $600 for that week but got it the next because I certified on time… But no back pay for the missing $600??? What am I missing here? Why did they not back pay it???

    1. Nj… Same here, I don’t understand… Did you ever figure it out or can someone on here give us some advice?

    2. Samies. My bf finally became eligible for the 13 week extension. He was able to claim 8 backdated weeks (3 on 5/29 & 5 on 5/30). On Monday 6/1, he received all 8 weeks of the weekly benefit rate, but only 3 weeks of the $600 FPUC payments when he should have gotten the full 8 weeks just like he did with the other payments. Why is this happening? Will he receive the other 5 weeks that he already claimed for? I’m seeing so many comments from people whose $600 just randomly stopped.. I’m just hoping this isn’t the case ='(

  10. NJ here… Have received several Regular UNemploymemt payments and several $600 payments but nothing retroactive allthough my balance compared to what I started with reflects back payments… I did have issues with DD but that has been resolved. I started getting weekly payments every week on 5/13 but no retroactive payments6 yet in NJ. Received email confirmation for the one retroactive payment but it never got to my bank or state debit card. Any insight on NJ retroactive payments?

  11. In Nevada over 67,000 self employed,gig worker,eic… have not received a dime despite the governor’s promise to pay out 72 hours after filing.it has been 12 days since the initial filing of may 16th and no pay….LIES… the site is a site from hell with insane gliches and claim issue codes no one understands.

    come election day every single one of the self employed should vote for the opposite party.hurt them where it counts,the way they hurt us. we should all start filing class action law suits.every one should also contact the white house and let them know they are stealing our money and livelihoods. I have and continue to make noise.crooked politicians understand threats not patience and cooperation.Hopefully KARMA will also bite every one of their asses severely.scum of the earth yo!I AM LIVID AND EVERY ONE SHOULD BE….RISE UP AND TAKE ACTION FALLEN FIGHTERS.!

    1. I have received up to 5 payments including the extra 600. But for the last few weeks. I haven’t received any payments. I have confirmation numbers due to my weekly files but no money has been applied to my account the last few weeks. What’s going on??

    2. Exactly, every voter should abandon party line voting and start thinking for themselves. When one party screws up from state level on up, vote for the person, not by party. Why does anyone vote party line only, it makes no sense at all, be an independent and stop being a pawn for the political parties BS.

  12. I live inNJ and am self employed, I just got my first deposit of the 231 for 3 weeks minus taxes 208 but did not receive retroactive for the 600 on those 3 weeks , no one to ask questions here whereas everyone knows there is not really anyone to talk too . That message please call on another business day will happen every time . I contacted NJ congress to push my status and believed it worked

    1. I’m in the same boat as you an the same has happened to me where I had gotten my first 4 regular payments of $208 at once but no $600 then the following week I did my claim on Wednesday then Friday just $208 no $600 yet until Tuesday this week all of a sudden $3000 at once. So give it another week Bud an hang in there cause it was nice getting a nice lump sum like that at once. Now hopefully it all starts to come at the same time as the regular benefits or atleast in the same week as the claim cause that was getting really stressful every week wondering where my money was.

  13. I live in Georgia. Been getting payments for 5 weeks regularly. Normally get deposited every Wednesday but not this week. It says online that its been paid this week. Just not get deposited. Is it just delayed?

  14. Florida : My husband signed up and miraculously after diligently signing in and getting kicked off FINALLY made it to the finish line it only took a few days and it was processed and eligible that very week he received
    Back Fl pay of 3 weeks , but only one 600.00 pmt (no retro and none as of this date) everything for the next 2 weeks after went as should until last week he received the 600.00 pmt no state pmt again this week.
    On the site it says he can sign back in 05/28 to claim weeks every week there is usually weeks that can be claimed not last week now this message.
    Going to wait till tomorrow and see what happens we are thankful that he had received the larger check , but still a little confused as to what is happening with the state

  15. I’ve only received one 600 payment and nothing else. Its been weeks I’m owed over 5000 in retro. I still receive 259 a week. Every time i get a hold of some one they cant help me or give me a direct answer. All the numbers I have been given all lead back to the same recording. Can anyone on here help me or has anyone been going through the same thing? I don’t know if I have to re apply or if having direct deposit helps i have a way2go card. Thanks, Human Being

    1. Florida- I recieved 7 weeks of regular UI and one $600 hard check.
      Florida has been terribly behind on FPUC, even though the fed has already allotted the funds to them. I heard they were sitting on it as it collected interest for several months.
      There is no time table on retroactive pay at this time.

      1. Hey Joe, I called Florida Unemployment and I was told that the Feds have not released the funds. Unemployment told me that they are releasing money as they get it from the Feds, no timetable as to when we will get money. I am owed 2 weeks so far.

      2. Florida-I’m in a similar situation. I applied way back on 3/22. Nothing happened for weeks. I logged in and checked everyday. then I started to get the 600.00 payments. I got 3 of them and then they stopped. My account says active and eligible. When I check past weeks it says disqualified. I had to spend two days trying to get someone on the phone to figure out what was going on. Come to find out I was over paid years ago. 400.00. Their was a determination that said I had to repay the amount and that it would be taken form my benefits and that I should keep claiming weeks. I’ve done that but nothing has changed. The person I spoke to could only offer this as an answer to my question about what was going on, “hmm, that’s strange.” I was told to just keep waiting. It’s been nearly 3 months, I know the system is strained but this is ridicules.

      3. i am in need of the link i have tried it many way to file mine too someone should please assist me thanks

        1. can someone assist me with the Florida link how to apply for my claim too

    2. I live in VA , I filed UC late on 4/27 get approved ( but my actual lost work on March 16,2020 on application). I also received letter approved and it states will receive extra $600 PUC starts 4/4/2020 to July 25,2020. I didn’t get any retro from UC & PUC. I don’t know if they delay or what?

      I check on website they will process claim the date you lost job not the date you filed claim. I don’t know the answer? Thanks for any advise .

  16. Work in NJ, received weekly benefits with no problem. Was receiving the $600 PUA until two weeks ago. Haven’t received it since. It was hitting my bank on Monday morning. Can’t call anyone at NJ UE because the phones are either shut off or if it goes through, all lines are busy. Anyone know what’s going on?

  17. Anyone has been receiving their unemployment and $600 payment, then all of a sudden it stop?? When I log into my account it doesn’t say ineligible or anything. Not sure what happened.
    The only thing I can think of that has changed is about a week and a half ago, my job had to lay me off. Before, it was temporary.

    1. Yes that has happened to me. I got my first UI check for two weeks but only one week of the $600.00 then I got another random deposit of $600.00 out of know where. I received my second two weeks of UI with no additional payments for the two weeks of $600.00 very frustrating. Can’t get any answers even when you do wait 1 hour on the phone just to hear they can’t give me any information other then they are working on it.

  18. I live in Washington state, but im trying to ask a question for a friend in Idaho trying to get the pandemic unemployment! She applied for benefits almost 2 months ago, & her account says active. But she HASNT received any updates on your case, hasn’t been approved or denied, & hasn’t received any amount of benefits! She has been making sure to submit her weekly job search claims, but still hasn’t heard a word! not sure what to do? ANYONE HAVE IDEAS FOR HER TO CHECK OR INFORMATION ABOUT WHY SHES HAVING THIS PROBLEM??

    1. Hey, I don’t have much advice but I did apply on 3/29 in FL and ended up being approved on 5/10. I had money in my account on 5/12. It included backpay for the weeks that had passed since I applied. I assumed that I was going to get denied or never processed but it did eventually go through. Don’t give up hope.

  19. I am in AZ and have not received one dime as compensation on the PUI system and its says approved and then says in progress in the pay date spot , for the life of god please help

  20. Forget the protesting opening up everything it’s time for a march on Washington so Trump can see people are not receiving the relief $$ that was approved AND offered to us gig workers. I almost think they’re attempting to get things opened up so fast so they can say the assistance program is suddenly void or the pot had run dry. Time to protest folks! People here in Ga are so frustrated they’re turning to our local news stations which oddly they call the DOL on the persons behalf and ACTUALLY GET THRU and get answers for the person. Amazing right? Do they have a number for the Labor Dept we don’t have? The media calls suddenly someone is available to answer questions. Nuts!!!

  21. The States must be pocketing this Federal $$! What is happening? Everyone has an entirely different story. I accidentally applied for regular UI too soon before they rolled out the PUA for gig workers. They said you have to be turned down for regular UI first. I was. Then I get a letter stating I’m eligible for 149.00 a week from 2/2 until 12/26/20???? Weird right? My friend, also a gig worker in the same state of Ga here got the same exact letter. We’ve both certified every week since we got that initial email stating to start doing so. Neither one of us working. Fast forward to today she has received nothing. Zilch. I received a DOUBLE payment on 5/6. It was 600 (twice) and 149 (twice) all in the same direct deposit. I was thrilled. I assumed it would be this way every two weeks since that was a double payment. Wouldn’t you? I’m still doing my weekly certifying also. Fast forward to today 5/22 nothing else. Not a dime. She still hasn’t received anything @ all. So here I am wondering did I suddenly get dropped completely? Is it coming eventually since they gave me those dates way back to 2/2 and they’re just running behind? Cannot absolutely cannot count on this. Nothing scarier than that. Nothing. Where is this $$ going???

    1. Your story sounds is a little similar. I received two payments of $600 and two payments of UI (beginning of May). Fast forward to last week, I only got $600. No UI. This week no $600 or UI. When I log into my account, there hasn’t been any changes or update or anything. I wasn’t dropped that I can see.

      1. Hello, I’m in Fl. Maybe someone knows what is happening. I applied for my unemployment on Mar 26th. It shows as eligible redetermined and it shows as active. I received two $600 payments at the same time then one eachfor the next two weeks. Now nothing I haven’t received any UI . I finally last week was able to claim my first weeks. Now I’m not getting anything. Anyone know why this might have happened. Is there a place to see your FPUC payments sent to you? By claiming my weeks last week did that stop the FPUC payments? Do I need to reapply? I’m Confused! SO many questions and can’t get through to get any answers. Thanks for any advice!

        1. Yes. I am in Florida as well and had received my state money then the $600 a few days later. It was deposited for 4 weeks every Tuesday. This week I haven’t received it. I have no idea why and I cannot get a hold of anyone to ask what happened.

        2. I’m in Florida also and having the same issue. I was approved and receiving the $600 every Tuesday until this week. I thought it might be delayed due to the holiday but can’t get any answers.

        3. I am in Florida and also logged on today and saw that I am “Eligible Redetermined”. I call this # 321-754-9289. When you call, you can press I think #1 and they will call you back. I got a call back within an hour. The lady I spoke with on the phone was super nice and told me she had received several calls regarding this new status of Eligible Redetermined just happened June 1st for alot of Floridians. She did tell me that it had to do with one of my previous employers sending or responding with my previous salary pay, but also told me that I was still active and nothing was put on hold as far as my state benefits. She also told me that there is no rhyme or reason as far as the $600 Federal payment being paid or not being paid the same time of the week. Some Floridians state they are now getting the Federal $600 bi weekly so it’s $1200 deposited with the state biweekly. She also told me unfortunately she is not able to tell me when I will get the $600 payment, but I will get paid even if they retro pay me for a few weeks. Florida is probably the worse state in the country as far as getting unemployment it sucks! Also, it says on the website that the Florida Gov has extended you do not have to put in your jobs you applied for until June 15th. DO NOT BELIEVE HIM!! Still put in the jobs you applied for when you claim your weeks to be 100% in compliance no matter what to make sure you get your unemployment payment. I hope this helps you a little bit, I just got the number today and again the lady on the phone was super nice.

  22. In Colorado. Applied April 20, lost job due to covid shut downs March 15 and stated so on application, application was approved , was sent payment twice since then but NO retroactive pua or reg unemployment, missing at least five weeks of pua and we are drowning. I am getting sent in circles. They say that pua is automatically sent and will be RETROACTIVE to March 29 which it has not been retroactively paid. HELP.

  23. I was eligible on 3/29/2020. Received my first payment of $600 on 4/21/2020. Will I get the retro pay for those weeks?

  24. I need someone in NJ to answer. I’ve been receiving my UI and the extra $600. Suddenly I didn’t receive the 600, but I did get my UI payment. Has anyone received a lump sum payment for the weeks that the 600 wasn’t sent?

    Secondly, WHO KNOWS A GOOD TELEPHONE NUMBER AND TIME THAT YOU CAN SPEAK WITH SOMEONE FROM NJDOL? Like…. the Governor, Mayor and all these paid elected officials need to stop pussyfooting with us and keep it real. You try to email and you get an automated email message. You try to call, its always busy and nobody can take a call. I even waited til 830am when they first opened and still got that same stupid ass message “due to extremely high call volume, we cannot take your call at this time”. I feel so sorry for the hundreds of thousands of people who are still waiting for an answer. Its a gotdamn nightmare just to get help! Why can’t the government do SOMETHING right? I pray everyone gets out and VOTES come November. Nothings going to change if we don’t do something!

    1. I read somewhere that someone got all there back pay from NJ but not me. Usually thr $600 payment happens about 5 days after your regular benefit deposits.

    2. The same exact thing is happening to me. I received three weeks of unemployment plus 600 on a weekly basis. For the last three weeks I have only received unemployment and not the additional 600. Its driving me nuts to not be able to get answers as to why the extra payment stopped. I just want to make sure there isn’t something I should be doing that I am not. And you can’t get through to anyone. Its frustrating.

    3. My wife the same thing happened last week she missed her day and time filled later in the week and got regular UE check but the 600 did not show up also missing the first 600 as well. Hopefully this week it will show up

    4. I emailed them through the unemployment contact and received a call back within 48 hrs. This was due to my unemployment just stopping after 3 weeks. They were behind 4 weeks. I spoke to them on Thursday of this week and the money is pending in my account today. I attached the link. Hopefully this will work for all of you as well.

    5. same thing to me, i am currently missing two $600 checks but i have only gotten two UI. is there a system issue in NJ? the two UI checks i had to claim on Saturday and Sunday, so is it possible that i may receive the two $600 on monday or do i have to do something?

    6. i didn’t get mines either on june 1st Monday anyone got a number for NJ to get help

  25. I live in pa and have been receiving my up every week and my 600 every week. This week i received my up not my 600. Can someone tell me if the same is going on with them or what i can expect. I have bills to pay and not sure what to do.

    1. I live in NJ and the same thing happened to me last week. I did not receive my 600 & I cant get a live rep. or answers. I waiting to see if it happens this week too…but I check with other friends and they received all of their money

      1. Please update us if you got it. I didn’t get mine for this week and there’s no one to talk to, email or anything. I’ve even faxed a letter to them stating my claim.

  26. Lies. I applied March 20th, 2020. My connect shows active claim, eligible, but on hold. I only received 2 $600 checks. and Nothing else in-between. The system is broken. From FLORIDA

    1. I have received all my regular unemployment with a ridiculous delay, 8 weeks and not a single $600. Federal payment to date.

  27. I did not receive the 600 a week retroactive to Apri! 4. May be missing 3 weeks.

  28. I was wondering if someone could help I live in Nj last week I missed my day to claim ui, so I claimed Saturday. I got my ui payment but never got my 600 like I have been getting for the past couple of weeks. I was wondering why they skipped it this week. Does anyone know?

    1. Same thing happened to me….& there no one to help us out…. waiting to see if the same thing happens this week too

    2. Same thing happened to me as well. I live in NJ too. Did the same exact thing you did. Missed my UI claim day and did it on Saturday. Were you able to find anything out?

    3. This same thing happened to me, except on my day to claim the system wouldn’t allow me to claim. It kept saying unavailable. I also did not receive my $600 payment. If anyone actually gets theirs please let us know. My bills are due and as we all know you must live on a budget in NJ. I am hoping we get both payments this coming week but with the holiday coming up I think this will get messed up again.

  29. I received my initial PUA payment after I finally received my retro unemployment benefits but so I haven’t received anything else but my regular unemployment benefits. Why did I stop receiving the extra $600 all of a sudden. I’m not making enough to pay any Bill’s or buy food. Who can I contact?

  30. I been filing for unemployment benefits in Alabama since the 03/23/20 and I was approved for PUA Benefits and received one payment for $600 week ending 4/4/20 and I haven’t received anymore since then and for some reason I had been denied for PUA Benefits and eligibility and needed to send out a appeal before the 19th of May and I did send out a appeal . And I just received a letter from PUA Benefits stating I been self certified and been approved for PUA Benefits and would receive all the backpay from week starting 4/4/20 to 07/25/20 for WBA of $114 and a extra $600 every week to and I’m at a stand still because of it and the Alabama Claims Tracker Portal hasn’t updated in over 3 weeks on my behalf and I would appreciate any help to finally get my claim going and updated for the PUA backpayments owed to me

  31. I’m in NYC ….. successfully completed my Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) Application and was notified that I became eligible for PUA. Received one payment on 4/26/20 and a second on 5/6/20. I certify each week with the Department of Labor. Why aren’t payments being made weekly? Why are our public officials and media silent on this matter? Where’s the money?
    Joe.

  32. Florida- I been on unemployment since January due to another reason other then Covid and I have been receiving my payments on time but when my weeks are done am I able to apply again because I did return to work in February but then laid off May 1st. I also received 2 $600 payments on May 4th but haven’t received anything else. Is there any where I can find out when I will receive my next $600 payment or any retroactive pay

  33. Alabama – I applied online it says that a PUA Eligibility issue has disqualified me. Then I received a letter stating i was approved. The letter has WBA $114 Possible $4446 Paid $0 Remaining $4446. Im assuming i was not approved for the state but approved for the Federal. Anybody in Alabama have any input?

  34. It took awhile to get payments (Waiting week was 4/5) I finally started getting payments on 4/28 for both UI and the $600 . They retroactively paid the two weeks of UI but not the two weeks of $600 payments I’m missing . Not sure if I need to contact someone about it or who I would even reach out to. I’m kinda hoping they will come on their own but knowing FL I’m sure I will have to work on it.

  35. I have been so confused on this whole mess. Self Employeed, was denied then was sent a letter saying momentary denial blah blah fill out the PUA form. Did.. go to check account on the first of May. and i see this.. Filed 4/3/2020 Benefit Year3/29/2020 – 4/4/2020
    Mailed 05/01/20 WBA $114 Possible$4,446 Paid $228 Remain $4,218
    A “PUA Eligibility” issue has disqualified you indefinitely.
    A determination letter was mailed to you on Friday May 01, 2020 explaining why you were denied.
    ok so i just see the word disqualified but i also see.. at the bottom..
    What I have been paid:

    Benefit Week Ending 4/11/2020
    WBA $114.00
    Eligible $114.00

  36. Hello,

    I received a payment of $600 on Saturday and received my retro pay from unemployment after waiting 6 long weeks on Monday with one payment of $600. They owe me 4 weeks. Will I be receiving that money or they’re not retro paying us? I live in Florida and I know we are extremely backed up on processing all of the unemployment claims.

    1. You said it – they are backed up on processing. It’s a mess, I agree. You’ll just to have till they clear their backlog

    2. I’m in a similar situation. My husband applied for regular unemployment on March 15. He didn’t get approved for almost 30 days. The amount was a joke, $73 a week. We got 3 weeks of regular unemployment & one week of the $600. We haven’t gotten a single retroactive payment from the Federal PUA. It’s disgusting & what’s worse is the governor is going to be allowing the courts to start evicting people on June 4th!

  37. Apploed for UI in Nevada on 5/3. Apprpved on 5/12. Payment received for UI on 5/13 (including 5 weeks of back pay). But no FPUC (extra $600 payments) have been included in those deposits. Waiting on back pay for FPUC still in Nevada.

  38. Hi everyone!
    I have the same issue as many of you. I got unemployment payments twice in a row (state + FPUC). I certified on Fridays usually but then NJ Labor updated their schedule and last time I certified on Sunday. So I got Unemployment payment on Monday (5/11) with FPUC as usual and next day I expected to get payment with FPUC for the previous week but I got just state benefit.
    Shortly, I got $600 just twice. I am little confused about that. I live and work in NJ.
    Could anyone please explain me what I am supposed to to in order to get it and how i should proceed next and following Sundays?

    1. Sounds like Nj is having system issues as hearing that the intermittent payment issue is happening in several states. Just wait to see If this gets fixed or try and get a hold of someone at the agency.

  39. Georgia- I filed Unemployment end of March, received my eligibility letter Beginning of April. I never received funds. I’ve appealed it because I didn’t see my other job on there. So I assume with my appeal that could have made the process longer?! But even if so, I was approved for a lower amount and still never got it. My question now is, now that I think I won the appeal. Once payments start will they pay me the extra $600 in retro payments as of my eligible date back in March? And in one lump sum? Or what to aspect? Is there anything else I should do?

    1. Yes. You should get it in one lump sump based on what other comments are saying. But it does vary state to state as they may backdate your pay by weeks they review your eligibility. But nothing more for you to do other wait and monitor progress

  40. I did volunteer claim march 20 got appeal date of April 17 then claim 2 weeks next said no need to claim employer is claiming for u on may 1 just got paid for march21 and march 28 and nothing since should i be worried or stay patient thinking about calling dol tommorw any advice i was ok now im exhaust my finances almost so i need to make a decision lol.

  41. I’m in PA, and have been out of work for 8 going on 9 weeks and I have only received UC benefits for 2 of those weeks. I also only received the extra $600 for those 2 weeks. I file on time every 2 weeks but my first and last pay was mid-April. Will I get back pay all at once for those missed weeks and will the extra $600 be back-paid as well? It is very frustrating not to be able to get through to the office or get a response to my email.

  42. 2 questions:

    1.
    I live in NJ & have been filing for 3 weeks.
    The first two times, I would claim on Wednesday, get my UI on friday & have my $600 monday. Well this past week, I didnt get to claim until late Saturday, I have my UI but not my $600. What’s going on ? Can someone please explain if you know ??

    2.
    My brother has only recieved his $600 once and that was april 27th. Since then he, has claimed for two weeks and has not got another payment. Can some please explain ?

    1. Marley- The answer time your first question about when you expect your $600 FPUC Payment is that you should receive it no later then next Monday since you claimed your weekly NJ unemployment benefits on a Saturday. The answer to your second question to your brothers problem I really have no idea. I have posted on here numerous times about my experiences with NJ unemployment and after starting to receive PUA benefits on May 4th the only problems I had were having to wait until the following Monday to receive my retroactive FPUC payments when there were supposed to be paid out a week earlier. That being said I would advise your brother to continue to claim his benefits each week and (unfortunately) be patient on receiving his benefit payments as the NJ DOL website and press articles seem to be inaccurate and inconsistent with actual real life occurrences. Hope this helps!

      1. Thank you so much. I recieved my 600 for last week and this week today. I have set an alarm to be sure not to miss my certify time

        1. So they (NJ) did p. y the week before as well as the week due on the same day? I didnt receive last weeks $600 I am hoping its coming this Monday. fingers crossed

  43. I live in Georgia My Pua Posted On There website But Not In My Bank Account Calling them U Never Get Threw I Don’t Know What To Do

  44. I been receiving unemployment since January & i also been receiving the $600 then all of a sudden the $600 stopped coming in . Also I know my benefits are exhausting soon but they even said after that the $600 still should be rolling in

  45. Im in ny. I applied for ui March 27th im a 1099 worker So I needed to speak to someone to complete my claim. Finally March 31st My claim was completed. I certified every week. April 16th Dol told me to apply for pua which I did and it made me claim from the week I became unemployed. I finally was told my claim in now out of pending and is payable. May 11th my 1st payment plus the $600 was released. Why didn’t I receive any back pay? On the payment column i had a waiting week and it said week of march 15th and it ended May 7th. I’ve been unemployed since March 19th. Please help

    1. Hello, I live in NY as well and I have the same situation as you. My last day I’ve worked was March, 8, 2020. I received my first payment last week which was my approved weekly benefit of $223 and plus the $600 but no back pay. My waiting week is posted on my account as March, 8,2020- May 15,2020. How is this even possible! I hope someone has information for us.

  46. My effective date says 4/26/2020 but last day worked was 03/13/2020 has anyone got backpaid with a later effective date?

    1. I live in California and saw my claim effective date was April 26th although I became unemployed March 8th. I just called unemployment (california number is: 833-978-2511) and after being on hold for 30 minutes I explained my situation and he corrected the dates. He said it would take about two weeks to reflect on my end. He also told me that I would receive my card two weeks after my first online certification.

  47. I received my first unemployment check on April 1st. And my first $600 on April 13th.

    I read on the NJWorkers faq page that the,

    “Pandemic Unemployment Compensation: provides an additional $600 per week, on top of regular benefits, to all recipients of Unemployment Insurance; retroactive to the week ending April 4, 2020.”

    Also that, “The additional $600/week compensation will be issued beginning April 14, for the week of March 30.”

    So my question is, Am I owed (missing) a week of PUC? or am I on track? TIA

    1. Photog- According yo what your saying.. i.e. that you received your first UI benefits on April 1st and then your first $600 FPUC payment on the 13th of April it does seem like you are owed an additional week of FPUC benefits. Although it depends on the original date you filed your claim. As the FPUC payments are retroactive to the week of March 29th. Hope this helps!

      1. Thanks Tyler N, I filed my first claim on March 23rd, my first Unemployment insurance benefit payment was processed on March 28th and deposited April 1st two days later. So, Im not sure if I am owed an extra week or not since it was so close?

        1. Photog- No problem glad to help..since it doesn’t seem like NJ DOL is doing much in helping us at all lol. Anyway since you filed your original claim on March 23rd and already received that weeks $600 FPUC payment unfortunately I don’t think you will get an additional retroactive Weekly payment. Since the retroactive payments were issued back to the week ending March 29th and that seems to be the week for which you already received that $600 payment. Mind you I’m not an employee of the State of NJ just going off of my experiences, the experiences of others, and what’s been posted on the website. So my word is not the end all be all but in my opinion I don’t think you will be getting paid an additional week.

  48. I am so glad I found this! I’m from Indiana.. So on Thursday May 7th at 930am I decided to check the website to see what was going on. It finally said I was being paid for 2 claims. Only $75 from my claim ending in March and $675 from my claim ending 4/5 I believe. So I decided to turn on my bank notifications and sure enough it deposited into my account at 12pm that day. SUCH A BLESSING! I only had 3 dollars to my name.. I’m a single father of my 8 month old girl and honestly didn’t know what to do. Now I’m sitting here wondering if I’m going to get anything else because I’m still 5 weeks behind at this point. I was expecting more than that but I’m really praying right now and hopes this situation gets figured out. If anything changes I will keep you guys posted! Best of wishes to everyone! We are all in this together.

    1. I am from Indiana as well. I filed 5/3 and received my first payment exactly one week later with the 600. I understand we get back pay? If so when will that happen? I filed 5/10 as my second week and received my pay again the next day 5/11 around noon. I was wondering if we needed to do anything extra to receive the back pay? For Indiana, the backpay states back to 3/29 so I should see 5 missed payments. Lord knows I need it.

  49. To everyone including (PalV & Grace) I just wanted to let you know as of Monday May 11th it seems as if “JerseyLady” was correct in her comment. The $600 retroactive and weekly payments for claimants on PUA Benefits in the State of NJ come to you a week after you get your regular weekly benefit payment. As of this morning (exactly one week after I got my retroactive unemployment) I got a deposit for $3,000 which is all my retroactive FPUC money along with last weeks $600 FPUC payment. If anyone else in NJ has any questions or comments let me know and I will try and help. I’m just hoping they keep coming as this whole process has been nothing short of a nightmare. And I will be wishing the best for everyone else on here as well.

    1. I received my UI this week but not the $600. Any idea why that would be? I didn’t claim until Sat this week, could that be the reason?

      1. Michele- I’m not sure if your from NJ I’m assuming you are. If that’s the case if you didn’t certify your weekly benefits until Saturday then yes that is most likely why you didn’t receive your $600 FPUC payment yet. I would wait until Monday May 18 to check for the $600 payment..that should be when you will receive it if it’s consistent with my payment.

        1. I’m from NJ and I owe for an UI overpayment when filing they took all my regular unemployment benefits for the money I owed will they also take the FPUC benefits as well for that debt? Is anyone else in the same boat where they owe money and they took regular benefits did they also take the extra FPUC benefit as well? Thanks in advance if anyone can answer that

        2. Hello, I am in the same boat. I owe UI money. I was able to finally get in the ti website to claim a file. Certified my weekly benefits for the first time today. Ofc the took my UI benefits. Do they take out the $600 as well and apply to what u owe? Or did u, get the xtra $600?

        3. Hi from NJ and was in same boat they took my 231 reg ui money towards the overpayment but I was able to receive my 600 pua benefit. Gave me all of my back pay too. That was last week. This week received just my 600. My wife though was getting her reg ui and the pua benefit until this week she didn’t get her pua. Idk if NJ systems are backed up or what.

    2. Hi Tyler that’s kind of refreshing to hear because I haven’t heard of anyone getting their retroactive unemployment benefits and their retro pandemic benefits help. I initially unemployed March 18th and my first payment was received on MAY 13th in the amount of my regular unemployment benefits 5 days later I got the extra 600 and then again on May 20th I got my regular unemployment benefits and I expect to get the next 600 on May 25th my question is when can I expect my back payments for both regular unemployment benefits and the extra $600 because I had spoke to an agent in the beginning of May and she had told me the next two weeks I would have everything up-to-date but obviously that hasn’t happened and I have since received two regular UC payments and two unemployment payments but nothing retroactive. I even received an email stating that the two retroactive deposits were sent to my account let me cuz I had a direct deposit issue it got rejected but never made it onto my Bank of America card

    3. i had to claim saturday may 16, for two UI checks and i never received my 600 for both checks. is NJ having some sort of delay with the system? am i eventually going to see the 1200?

  50. NJ just got first $600 5/11, been on unemployment since 3/16 (first UI check was deposited to my account 4/6). Truly hoping they don’t just stop at July but pay backlogged weeks.

  51. I owe nj unemployment money for over payment and they are taking my unemployment check will I still get the 600 pua payment.

  52. I received my regular unemployment plus the $600 BUT no retro back pay yet. It shows on my payment “info” that I have been paid for the last 5 weeks NOT!!!! only the regular unemployment but the back pay $600…. so how long now?? My meds with insurance is $652.00 a month I’m out and needing them badley…. please Wisconsin get with it!!!

    1. I am the same way. I got the extra $600 for the last week I claimed but nothing for the weeks before that.

  53. My unemployment was deposited on Wednesday but nothing for the FPUC. Which according to IDES (Illinois Department of Employment Security) it gets deposited with our unemployment payment. Is this just a way for Pritzker to keep our money from us since Trump won’t give him any. #illinoissucks

  54. i just received a letter stating i am eligible for PUC Can i then apply for FPUC? i was self employed The virus keeps me away from clients and me away from them.

  55. I am in Wisconsin. We haven’t gotten the retroactive pay but the weekly $600 started this week. They said the retroactive payments should be done being dispursed by tonight; hitting our bank accounts tomorrow morning. So we will see. I hear Minnesota hasn’t missed a payment so they must really have it together. In any case I will check back in the morning and let you know.

    1. Thank god I am from Wisconsin too haven’t received the back pay and was worried fingers crossed for tomorrow

    2. Same here from Wisconsin. No retro in my account as of May 8th. My sons also. Between them they have seven children to feed. What the hell? There is no question about eligibility. Why can’t we get a straight answer. Getting this money in the hands of Wisconsinites should have been a priority! An answer from our Governor would be nice. We are all hurting here.

    3. We received our $600 extra this week on our unemployment check but none of the retroactive we were told it would be in our bank by this morning and it is not any reason why it did not show up yet or is there are any other delays we need to know about

    4. Hasn’t happened to me! Haven’t see any FPUC money for weeks 14-16/20 and went back to work week 17/20. Received my regular unemployment but that is all.

    5. I too live in Wisconsin… it is Friday morning 5/8, the date they said the back payment would be in my bank account… it isn’t there. I have an email into them and will call as soon as they open up…

      1. CURIOUS to if you get paid! i havent been paid either. but someone on twitter was posted this morning with 2400 payment

    6. I’m in WI, and didn’t see any back payments even though the WI UC website said we should have them by today.

    7. I’m in Wisconsin too. Same situation and nothing this morning. This is so frustrating.

    8. Same, also in WI and been waiting. It is now the 8th and still nothing in my bank account. The DWD website was updated 4/30 and said all payments/back pay will be completed by the 8th. I know this week was the first week I got the extra 600 and it didn’t hit my account til 1pm (which normally it’s there like 7am) so maybe by the end of the day we will have it???

    9. I am in Wisconsin also. Received $600, but no retro. Checked bank this morning and nothing. Guess we will have to wait on the next check?

    10. In Wisconsin here, still no retropayments. They said today was the cut off so not sure what’s going on at this point.

    11. I live in WI and am waiting on my retro payments still. I called in and they said if not by today they should be next week. So hope this helps…
      Did you get yours?

      1. I’m also in Wisconsin. 2:15 p.m. on Friday and still no retro payments. Thanks for the info Jeff. At least someone is trying to keep people updated. Very annoying when they said this would all be done by today. I saw something else where they claimed it would have been done by yesterday. Now apparently it’s going into next week? So frustrating!

    12. I too am waiting on these retroactive payments, nothing….. No communication from them on their website…..Tired of waiting on this administration. I

    13. Same here, my $600 started this week, but still no retroactive payment, even as of this morning.

    14. Also in Wisconsin, bartender laid off two weeks before the FPUC retroactively starts, haven’t received any of the $600 payments, glad I’m not the only one. Pretty disappointed in our states response at this point: one of the last to comply, slowest to get benefits out, sending out incorrect dates of finishing payments and from the looks of it, barely anyone has gotten any of the federal money. What a cluster.

    15. As of 1:30 Friday afternoon, I still have nothing deposited in my account. Please let me know if you hear anything more.

      1. where did you get the info they’ll be deposited tomorrow morning? because my UI hasnt updated or changed at all, i havent gotten any back FPUC benefits at all. (Wisconsin)

  56. When are we going start receiving the 13 week extension under the CARES ACT? The governor states as possible,waiting for guidance and programming an ancient computer system. Come on 6 weeks after the bill passed

    1. Hi!
      Did you end up receiving your back pay? I’m in Wisconsin as well and mine was not deposited this morning…

  57. This not knowing when benefits will be paid has been so irritating. I live in new mwxico and they just keep dragging any answers or relevant dates of help along. IDK how im supposed to stay afloat. When will we be compensated?

  58. I live In Colorado. Have yet to receive my $600 with my unemployment. Now that stores are starting to reopen…..will I ever receive mine or just not get it at all? Cant seem to find any answers.

  59. I’m in Florida and have seen reports that for people who were approved for weeks prior to the enactment of the FPUC would lose eligibility for payment during those weeks. For example, a person who applied on 3/15 would only get 10 weeks of FPUC but a person who applied on 4/6 would get 12 weeks of FPUC. Unemployment in Florida is falling apart and those who filed early have been out of work the longest. That extra $1200 is essential to climbing out of the deep hole of debt many of us Floridians have accrued because we’ve waited for 7 to 8 weeks to get any payments at all. Are they punishing early filers by taking away two weeks’ worth of eligibility?

    1. I filed my UC on March 29th in the State of NJ. It was finally Friday May 1st that Nj finally contacted me if my PUA eligibility and allowed me to claim retroactively for 4 weeks of Unemployment. I have successfully received my 4 weeks of unemployment payments but have yet to receive my 4 weeks retroactive $600 FPUC money and are getting no answers anywhere..

      1. Following. I have the same issue like yours Tyler. Don’t know where to contact to find answers. If you find anything let me know.

        1. PalV I’m still actively seeking answers and calling/ emailing NJ Dept. if Labor and Workforce Development for answers. I will definitely let you know of any updates if or when I get them. Also I heard that some people like us receiving PUA benefits in NJ never got their retroactive $600 payments but successfully got their first payment after they claimed their first regular (not retroactive weeks). But I am also not part of this group as I have claimed my first week on 05/02 and 5 days later and no extra payment.

      2. omg, we have exactly the same situation. We even filed the UC on the same date lol … since my applicaied got approved on the April 29th, I only got the weekly unemployment benefits but not the $600/ week even tho the email said that I am eligible for the $600.. the state maybe just running out of money.

      3. The money comes a week behind on Mondays. So if u claimed 4 weeks and received that the 2400 should be on its way probably tomorrow morning.

        1. “JerseyLady” I really hope your right. Have you been consistently receiving your $600 Federal payments a week behind since you’ve been on unemployment? I only ask because I know people that have been on NJ unemployment and have claimed getting their Federal payments 2 business days after they get their Weekly Unemployment Benefit payments.

      4. Literally same situation. Filed UC March 29 have now received 2 unemployment deposits and zero additional 600 they would now owe me 5 weeks. We need to call Murphy’s office and find out what he plans on doing Bc he just extended another 30 days so he can get the federal money to “help the people” yet it feels like he’s just putting it in his pocket.

        1. Amanda- the site shows you commented @ 12:25AM this morning. I just wanted to update you directly to let you know that I did receive my 5 weeks of back $600 FPUC payments in my BofA Government Card at 6AM this morning. Another person commented yesterday that the $600 are made a week after you get your regular unemployment benefits (even though the NJ DOL website states differently) but she seems to be correct. Not sure if you got yours this morning or not.

  60. So let me get this straight. For those who are eligible for Unemployment Benefits ALSO receive the $600 weekly payment. But those who are ineligible do not receive the $600. How is that fair? I work 15 hours a week Part Time in a restaurant. Am I being excluded because I work Part Time? I was denied UI because not one of my quarters could meet the minimum requirement of UI which is $2500 in New York State. I did file a form for PUA. I have not heard if I qualify for the PUA but I did receive a $600 direct deposit on 4/24 and the UI site says I have a valid claim. Now I’m not getting that $600. The President signed a law that provides additional Unemployment Insurance assistance to workers impacted by COVID-19 which provides PUA, PUC and PEUC.

    1. IDK about NY but normally UI is for F/T employment. Because of Pandemic ,that is waived. Normally waiting week is not included but that also is waived. I too work P/T of 15 hrs per week in retail , along with my SSDI and I receive UI and PUA ($600 weekly ). Normally you must do a job search ,with so many searches per week…that is waived. My paperwork says no searches required but that may change down the road as things open more with cases going down. I had never applied for UI and it’s certainly a learning experience and a waiting game because of the massive amounts of applicants. Good Luck ! Texan

      1. You are saying PUA (Pandemic Unemployment Assistance) when you should be saying FPUC (Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation). The FPUC is a temporary emergency increase of $600 per week in unemployment benefits. The PUA is a new temporary federal program that provides up to 39 weeks of unemployment benefits to individuals who are not eligible for regular Unemployment Insurance.

        1. I received for weeks of back pay last week and i certified yesterday for last but no fpuc payments does anyone know a timeframe of how long it can take or do they process randomly with their eyes closed…..NJ

        2. “Jersey” I have also received retroactive payments for back Unemployment last week in NJ and also for the week ending 05/02 but also have not received any FPUC payments in NJ.

        3. Have you been able to receive you retroactive payments because I’m going thru a similar situation been able to collect my last 5 weeks but no payment of 600
