The CNMI Department of Labor (DOL) is reminding the general public that the last day to submit both online or paper Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) applications is Monday, October 4, 2021.

PUA claimants may choose to submit their paper applications on the final day of submission on Monday, October 4, 2021.  On this date, all applicants, regardless of their last name spelling (A-Z), will be allowed to submit their paper applications from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm at the Department of Labor Building No. 1334 on Capitol 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 October 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 February 2, 2020 to December 26, 2020), should submit weekly certifications for the second and third round (effective December 27, 2020 to September 4, 2021) of the PUA program.
