The Oregon Employment Department (OED) has begun taking applications for PUA (Pandemic Unemployment Assistance), an Unemployment Insurance program with expanded eligibility for those who are self employed, are not paid via a regular W-2, and/or who are otherwise not eligible for normal unemployment insurance. Join this webinar with a representative from OED who will share the important information you need to know about how the program works, the application process, and what to expect. There will also be an extended Q&A period where you can ask your questions and receive live, real-time responses from an OED program specialist.
