The federal Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) Program was recently created to provide temporary additional benefits to unemployed American workers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) funding will only cover the six-week period from the week ending Aug. 1 to the week ending Sept. 5. No LWA funding will be available to states beyond that time period. Indiana will make payments the week of Sept. 21, covering the period of Aug. 1 to Sept. 5, for those eligible. For those claimants with issues holding payment, DWD will make payments, pending funding availability, once eligibility is established. For more information visit click on the link below:
