Employees & Workers Impacted

If your job has been affected by COVID-19, you may be eligible to receive Unemployment Compensation (UC) benefits. You can visit the Unemployment Compensation website, and the UC Benefits & COVID-19 FAQ Page for specific information.

Due to the high volume of calls and live chat requests the PA Department of Labor & Industry’s UC team is receiving, the best way to reach the team is via email at uchelp@pa.gov and a member of their team will be in touch if they need any additional information.

You can also get updates and information on PA Department of Labor & Industry’s Facebook page and Twitter.
