Pennsylvania has launched its new system to file claims for unemployment, and there are some new features and requirements you can expect to face if you’re using the new program.
The changes to this system have been needed for some time.
The old system had been in place for around four decades, and its flaws were exposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Department of Labor & Industry says this new system should be faster.
It’s also expected to reduce the need for Unemployment Compensation customer service, because claimants will have access to more information and self-serve options.
Claims for the week of May 30 can be filed through the new system.
