  • — June 15 2020

The Montana Department of Labor & Industry (DLI) today announced that over 46,000 Unemployment Insurance (UI) payments totaling over $49M were issued over the week of June 8 through June 12, providing benefits to Montanans impacted by COVID-19.

That figure includes regular UI benefits, Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) benefits, Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC) benefits, and the additional $600 weekly Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) benefits.

“We’re dedicated to helping Montanans who have lost their job or have had their hours reduced over the last two months,” Acting Commissioner Brenda Nordlund said. “We know every day matters for workers awaiting their benefits. That’s why we’re committed to quickly and accurately processing UI claims to ensure eligible Montanans receive the benefits they need.”

DLI continues to encourage anyone who believes they may be eligible for UI to file a claim online at MontanaWorks.gov, or at mtpua.mt.gov for those that fall under the PUA eligibility guidelines . Those with technical, eligibility or benefits questions are encouraged to view the COVID-19 resource website at dli.mt.gov/covid-19. A variety of information for both Montana workers and employers are available, in addition to resources to help claimants navigate the unemployment process.
