What is the process for partial unemployment for people whose hours have been reduced as a result of COVID-19?
If your wages have been reduced as a result of COVID-19, you may file for benefits at www.AZUI.com. Depending on your individual circumstance and the amount of gross wages (wages earned before taxes/deductions) you have earned, you may be eligible for benefits.
Weekly earnings will impact your weekly benefit amount. When filing your mandatory weekly claim (the benefit week starts on Sunday and ends on Saturday) you must report all earnings, and earnings in excess of $30 are deducted from the weekly benefit amount. Note, you must receive at least $1 in benefits in order to qualify for the additional $600 Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) payment. For example, if you qualify for the maximum weekly benefit amount of $240 and you receive $180 in earnings for a week, provided you met the other weekly eligibility requirements, you would receive $90 + the $600 FPUC payment for that weekly claim. If you receive at least $240 in earnings for a week, you will not be eligible for any benefits for that week.
