Federal guidelines state that claimants cannot receive benefits in both Canada and the U.S. As the pandemic continues and with more unique circumstances among claimants, this question must be answered when individuals file their regular UI claim each week. The question has been revised and starting next week, will now state: “Are you currently receiving unemployment benefits from Canada?” If this change affected your payment, DES will amend your answer in order to process your weekly claim this week. If this was the only issue on your claim, you should see resolution and payment soon. You do not need to contact DES to resolve this issue. PUA claimants are NOT affected.
