Thursday, August 05, 2021
ROCHESTER, Minn. - Community members who receive extra pandemic unemployment benefits have a month to attend a number of webinars aimed at helping Minnesotans find a new career path.
The unemployment benefits through Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) or Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA), will be ending on September 4.
Currently, participants are receiving an additional $300 a week on top of regular unemployment benefits.
However, the Department of Employment and Economic Development wants to help Minnesotans prepare for the transition.
