TDLWD works through weekend to implement changes

The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development says its employees worked through the weekend with its system vendor to implement the federal unemployment program extensions outlined in the recently-approved extension of federal pandemic relief.
According to the TDLWD, “claimants who exhausted their federal pandemic unemployment benefits prior to December 26, 2020, should have new benefit balances added to their PUA and PEUC claims. If the claimant exhausted benefits on, or prior to December 26, they can attempt to complete a certification. If the claimant is unable to certify and the system prompts them to file a claim, they should proceed and complete the refiling process. Claimants can go back and certify for missed weeks. They are required to provide work searches for each of the weeks they certify to receive unemployment benefits.”
