The CNMI Department of Labor is reminding the public that the last day to submit both online or paper Pandemic Unemployment Assistance applications is Monday, Oct. 4, 2021.
PUA claimants may choose to submit their paper applications on the final day of submission on Monday, Oct. 4, 2021. On this date, all applicants—regardless of their last name spelling (A-Z)—will be allowed to submit their paper applications from 7:30am to 4:30pm at the Department of Labor Building 1334 on Capital Hill.
New PUA claimants must submit their initial claim and corresponding weekly certifications in order to be considered for the PUA program no later than Oct. 4, 2021.
Claimants who are continuing their weekly certifications and are still in the same status (furloughed/laid off/reduced hours) as they were in the first round of PUA (effective Feb. 2, 2020, to Dec. 26, 2020), should submit weekly certifications for the second and third round (effective Dec. 27, 2020, to Sept. 4, 2021) of the PUA program.
All applications received by the department will be reviewed and determined for eligibility of the PUA benefits.
