FILING 2021 PUA WEEKLY IF BACK CLAIM ON HOLD

I recently discovered that I am eligible for PUA benefits as a furloughed freelancer with a reduced income. I was able to speak with someone in PUA after about an hour hold who helped me with my 2020 back log claim. However, they told me not to begin filing for 2021 until my 2020 back claim was resolved. Does this sound right? My understanding is that is may take months to resolve. I plan on calling again but in the meantime my work as a freelancer remains compromised. Did anyone here go through something similar and what did you do? I do not want to jeopardize my 2020 backlog in any way if I am eligible, as it appears I am. What would you do? #unemplyment #help #pua

i got fired in april 2020. i applied for reg unemployment in may. got denied. i appealed. got denied again. my old boss fired me for medical problems but told unemployment that i quit which i did not. i told him i would be back after he "opened" back up. he never closed and was still allowing customers inside to eat. do i qualify for the PUA? i havent had an income for almost a year.

That doesn't sound right, maybe they meant not to file a new claim for 2021 until you received funds from 2020 because if you do then that would start your claim over. But for you to receive the back pay all they have to do is email you pay order forms for the weeks you were eligible

Keep filing because if you dont it will be another issue. Someone tried to fraud my account and it took me 8months to get that resolved. I just recently got it back. Dont leave nothing to chance with this. Cover all angles because if you dont keep filing you will get screwed out of all your back pay untill its gets resolved. You only waited an hour to speak with them? Lucky you. I waited 6 and a half hours....

If you have direct deposit for your pua your going to get a chek for that back money. They stopped dd last year. If you have the card it will go on the card. I would keep filing for weeks this year. Why have to fo through the wait of sitti g on the phone for 2hrs waiting to get through.that does t even make sence, you claim tour weeks as they end. Just another thing to make it confusing
