Pennsylvania New Unemployment Compensation Update Coming in June

The Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry has announced that the department will be launching its new unemployment compensation system on June 8, 2021. The new system will provide access to more information and self-serve options, reducing the need for claimants to contact the understaffed and overworked UC service center. The current system has been in place for more than 40 years and has experienced significant problems, recently being heightened as a result of the pandemic. Read more about the new UC system.
