Missouri Work Search Requirements to be Re-instated on July 5th
By UnemploymentPUA.com Staff, Friday, July 3rd, 2020
Beginning the week of July 5th, individuals who are receiving unemployment benefits will be required to perform and report 3 work search activities every week.
These requirements were previously waived because of COVID-19, and are now being reinstated.
Work search activities are required for programs including regular Unemployment Insurance (UI), Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA), Extended Benefits (EB), and Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC). Claimants will be required to perform and report three work search activities per week to remain eligible for benefits.
Qualified work search activities include, but are not limited to, filing an application (online or in-person) with an employer or through job posting sites or attending a job fair, job interview, reemployment service or employment workshops. Part-time employment performed during a week is credited on a per-day basis.
To assist with work search activity efforts, UnemploymentPUA.com's Career Center has developed a special series of workshops that can be used as work search activities. Enroll here.
