April 24, 2020 – Maryland Department of Labor is launching a new one-stop unemployment insurance application to allow all Marylanders to file all types of claims entirely online. This includes those who are eligible for the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) program, the Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) program, and individuals who were previously required to file by phone. The launch of this new online application has allowed Maryland’s Division of Unemployment Insurance (DUI) to implement all three Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) programs.
