Have your PUA benefits stopped because you didn’t provide “proof of employment,” or because OED rejected your “proof of employment”?

Have your PUA benefits stopped because you didn’t provide “proof of employment,” or because OED rejected your “proof of employment”? You have until September 4, 2021 to submit adequate POE. Around June 22, you should receive an email telling you about this new due date and what to do. If you do NOT submit proof of employment by September 4, 2021, you’ll owe an overpayment for the benefits you were paid after December 27, 2020. An overpayment means you will have to pay back the benefits you received. OED’s online POE tool can help you figure out what you can use for proof of employment. See below for more information about this issue and OLC’s lawsuit about it.
