Pandemic Unemployment Assistance
New York City and State officials have released information on additional unemployment resources as a result of the CARE Act. There are new and additional unemployment benefits called Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) that are available to those who are not typically eligible for unemployment insurance including self-employed/1099 workers, part-time workers, and those who were not working for an extended period of time. Impacted students can apply by phone or online. This information sheet provides helpful information or you can visit the New York State Department of Labor website.
It is important that we communicate with all students, faculty and staff during this time. We urge all of you to update and complete your contact information in CUNYfirst. Also, the college will send out community notices to the email addresses provided in CUNYfirst and through CUNY Alert text messages if necessary. In addition, updates will be posted on BMCC’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Linkedin.
