I am unable to work remotely, so I am no longer working (or my hours have been reduced). Am I eligible for unemployment benefits?
You may be eligible if:
- Your employer reduces your hours because of COVID-19
- Your employer temporarily closes or goes out of business because of COVID-19
- You have been told not to work because your employer believes you might get or spread COVID-19
- You have been told to quarantine or self-isolate or live/work in a county under government-recommended mitigation efforts
Pennsylvania has requirements that you must meet before approving unemployment benefits. If you are unsure whether you meet the requirements, apply for benefits.
