INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS/FREELANCERS/GIG WORKER/SELF-EMPLOYED WHO WERE DENIED UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS:

The regular unemployment insurance program was not designed to provide unemployment insurance coverage for this category of work. However, if you are an independent contractor/freelancer/gig worker/self-employed who was determined to be ineligible for regular unemployment insurance  (the Weekly Benefit Rate on your claim status will read $0), you may be eligible for other recently created federal benefits, such as Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA).  

Please visit our website — nj.gov/labor — for more information on how to qualify for federal benefits under the CARES Act.  At this time, you do not have to do anything further. The Division of Unemployment Insurance will notify you when PUA is ready to be implemented.  We are working with other states and the federal government to implement this new benefit program as fast as possible for the residents of New Jersey.  

If you  are eligible for PUA, you will receive retroactive unemployment benefits for the PUA program to Feb. 2, 2020, or whenever your business was impacted by COVID-19.

Further, anyone who is eligible for PUA is also eligible for a $600 weekly supplement (starting the week of March 29th) and for a 13-week extension of benefits beyond the normal 26 weeks. You do not have to do anything further. You will receive these supplemental benefits once the PUA process is complete.
