The temporary unemployment benefit programs authorized under the CARES Act expired at midnight on September 4, 2021. These programs included Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA), Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC), and Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC). These programs also expired for claimants that show a benefit balance on their claim.
Unemployment appeals are being processed as soon as possible. Claimants can contact the PUA call center at 1-800-603-9681 for any assistance regarding their appeal.
This program provides unemployment insurance benefits support for otherwise ineligible workers, including self-employed. PUA is available retroactively from February 2, 2020 through December 26, 2020 and provides up to 39 weeks of benefits to qualifying individuals who do not qualify for regular unemployment insurance (UI), Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) or State Extended Benefits (SEB) but are otherwise able to work and available for work except they are unemployed, partially unemployed, or unable or unavailable to work due to a COVID-19 related reason. Benefits are payable for weeks you were previously out of work, even if you have since returned to work.
This program provides an additional 13 weeks of regular unemployment insurance benefits for eligible claimants whose claims have been exhausted (i.e., all eligible unemployment insurance funds have been paid out).
This program provides an additional $600 to each week of regular unemployment insurance benefits or to the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program weekly insurance benefits (PUA) for otherwise ineligible workers (see next paragraph for further details). FPUC benefits to eligible claimants will be paid for the period starting the week ending April 4, 2020 thru the week ending July 25, 2020 for a total potential of 17 weeks, based on each claimants’ eligibility.
The work search requirement relaxed during the pandemic expires May 1, 2021. Claimants should be aware that the work search requirement is back in full force starting on May 2nd requiring all claimants to fulfill the job search requirements in order to keep receiving benefits.
Claimants will not be required to register for employment services in-person at Nevada JobConnect Offices or any other local employment offices within their area until these offices have reopened. Currently, claimants can log into EmployNV.gov and search for work. Anyone receiving unemployment benefits (regular UI or PUA) has an existing registration in EmployNV, so there is no need to create a new account. Once logged in, there are jobs to search through, labor market information, a resume builder and information about training opportunities.
Out of state claimants will also be required to register for employment services in their state until further notice. (NRS 612.375, NAC 612.170)

The 7-day waiting period (i.e., the waiting period of time between applying for and receiving unemployment insurance benefits) previously suspended is now active effective August 8, 2020. Claimants may see an increase in time before they receive payments after their initial application for benefits if filing a claim on or after August 8, 2020.
Claims with a Deductible Income issue will not be paid for a one-week period beginning the effective date of the claim. Issues will still be adjudicated and adjusted accordingly, including any FPUC payments that the claimant may be entitled to, and payments will be paid starting the second week of the claim, if all other eligibility requirements are met. This action affects deductible income issues including separation pay issues such as vacation pay, severance pay, wages in lieu and paid vacation. This action does not apply to pension pay issues as these issues do not fall within the separation pay category.
