Expansion of Unemployment Insurance Benefits Under the CARES Act

April 21st, 2020 by WCBC Radio

On Friday, April 24, the Maryland Department of Labor will be launching a new, one-stop unemployment insurance application to allow Marylanders to file claims for all unemployment programs entirely online. This includes the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program, the Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation program, and those who were previously required to file by phone.


Starting Friday, April 24, those who are self-employed, independent contractors, gig workers, or have insufficient work history will be able to apply online.


For more information about these programs and other unemployment questions, visit the Maryland Department of Labor.
